Tracheostomy

huh


My dad had his tracheostomy this afternoon. This morning we were told that it had been cancelled, and that it wouldn't be taking place for at least another day. Fortunately, my dad's nurse kicked up a minor shit-storm. The miscommunication made her seem inept and she wasn't having any of it. Lo and behold, four hours later my dad was out of surgery and resting a whole lot easier.
