Three Little Birds

Story of 3 little birds and one who soared above us all.

Here’s a link that shows the Foker technique in animation. It seems so easy and strait forward from this clip. Unfortunately accessing the esophagus is about like finding 2 ends of a linguini noodle in the center of the body which is why this is such a complex birth defect to correct.

Here’s a link that further explains the Foker technique although this is much more simple in babies who have not had a lot of surgery and scar tissue to their chest. Lydia won’t have any more stretching for now until she goes to the OR Friday and they decide the next step.
