About amma

As of December 5 I joined the trach group. It was planned for the end of January but my gall bladder had other ideas. Reading all the question and hints was very helpful. I felt prepared even though it was earlier than expected. Although everything started with my right shoulder and arm my left arm is now very weak. We had ordered a foot control and it finally came in and was installed January 5.
