That really stinks, huh?
Anyway, my mommy told me that he is in the hospital again tonight. He has had to be in the hospital a lot lately because he's having a lot of trouble breathing. They've moved him into the ICU. See?
Anyway, they scoped him, and his epiglottis is swollen, and tomorrow he has to have surgery to get some tissue cut in his throat. They are worried that it might cause blistering or scarring, but they don't have any other choice. It's either this or a tracheostomy, so they want to try this first.
Would you please pray for my friend? His mommy is so sweet and has been such a big support to my mommy, and I hope to get to meet Tripp one day really soon. He already has a g-tube, so he's trying to help me feel not as scared about having to get one. He's very brave.
Maybe you could also visit his Caring Bridge Site and leave him (and his parents) some messages of HOPE and LOVE! Mommy remembers when I was in the hospital with breathing problems over Easter, and she was so scared. She says this g-tube stuff is nothing compared to breathing issues.
So please pray for Tripp and his parents, Courtney and Randy.
All EB kids are SOOO amazing, but Tripp holds a special place in our hearts.
Thanks y'all! You're the best!
