The last few times I've changed Lily's trach there has been a peach-colored crust on the last centimeter or so of her trach tube (the part that is inside her trachea). Today when I changed her trach there was a lot of this crusty stuff. She's had her trach for almost a year, and there's never been this stuff on the end before. We change her trach once a week. She's been sick a lot for the past month or two; I wonder if that has anything to do with it? Anybody know what this is?
Thanks for your help
