At our appointment with the ENT last week, we inquired about getting one for Ellie. It required a downsize of her trach size and then a special valve to place over the trach.
Now for the exciting part. I have read that it is very difficult for a child to get used to the passy-muir and some do not even tolerate using it. So, we tried not to get our hopes up when we tried it out this evening. But Ellie totally blew us away, and did completely fine with the valve! Her saturation numbers are as good as always!
And... we heard our daughter vocalize officially for the very first time! We praise God for the noises that she can make!
don't worry, we caught it on video for you :D

first, Adam doing therapy with Ellie. She is sitting in her cousin Reed's bumbo seat, and Adam is using a vibrating brush for oral stimulation
second, here is an udated picture of Seth with his new haircut
lastly, here is Noah with his missing tooth. The other bottom tooth is now loose, so he is quite exciting for it to come out as well. Sorry about the scary picture...

I've had to change my blog due to a massive spam invasion. It is a work in progress, so bear with me :)
