Dilation #1

Dilation went well. She had actually closed up a bit more from the last scope and they had a very tight fit with a 2mm tube. They dilated with the balloon and we’re able to get it to where a 3mm tube fit loosely through. A normal 2 yo would have about a 4mm opening for perspective. They expect that it will shrink up again, so it’s kinda 5 steps forward, 2-3 steps back. Goal at this point would be to get her to 3.5mm by the end. We also downsized her trach to a 3.5 (she was at a 4) so that she can get more air through her mouth.

We’re waiting to see her now.
