Today he was put on a trach

I just wanted to let everyone know that today they put my dad on a trach. There was a scare where the respiratory therepist did not put the trach cover on correctly and he did not get oxygen for 3 minutes, thank god my mom was there. She got the supervisor and had this respiratory therepist removed from my dad’s case as she was also the one that his ventilator tube came out during one of her treatments. He is completely sedated today and tomorrow they will assess him. The scare that happened today with him not having oxygen has me worried, but I hope tomorrow when we assess him he will be able to shake his head yes and no like he did before this procedure. I will keep you all posted. Thank you so much for the support and comments they are keeping me staying positive and strong. By the way my mother is a super human and she continues to keep being a positive and spiritual partner to her husband of 46 years – my dad.
