Ever Wonder What Abby Would Look Like Without a Trach?
This story starts wayyyyy before Abby was born. Actually, it was even before Caleb was born. Shortly after I found out I was pregnant (actually, the day after I found out I was pregnant!), I went to a yard sale and found this sweet little vest. I bought it without knowing whether I would have a girl or a boy, but figured I'd get it, you know, just in case. Well, turns out, Caleb didn't look good in pink, so I stashed it in the back of the closet!
Nearly five years later, Abby is finally able to wear it! It's still a little big, so Matt got the idea to zip it up over her circuit (tubes). NO, we didn't disconnect her from anything! We just simply covered it all up with the vest!
I think my girl is beautiful just the way she is...and I think an element of her beauty is because of her tubes. But, it was fun to imagine for a minute what she'd look like sans tubes. :)
One day, this will be a reality!!!
Until then, we've got the vest! :)
