My son Gabriel is scheduled for CTR (Cricotracheal Resection) surgery this thursday to repair his subglottic stenosis and hopefully remove his trach. The procedure will be performed in CLeveland at Rainbow Babies & Children. He has gone under several times but I don;t know why I fel so nervous
He will be in the nicu for 10 days and sedated for 5 of those days. If any of you have any advice or have been through this procedure before I would love to hear how it turned out...
