I realize it's a little late, but we now have pictures to compare Cicily's jaw from before her jaw distraction surgeries, to after her jaw distraction. I like to use her trach vent as a "yardstick". The difference is truly amazing! She has a much bigger jaw. She also has much more hair! One grew easily and naturally; and one grew with the incredible expertise of doctors, and care of Mom, Dad, Grandma, family and friends.

I put the Passy-Muir valve (talking valve) on Cicily's trach today and as always, she started to babble and make tons of loud noises that we're not too used to hearing. Maya says to me, "Mom, you're going to have to turn that thing down for church tomorrow."
