So ever since we refused to pull his tubing and NOT allow for a organ donation as I said yesterday I feel like things have been some what different. Life for example when I came in yesterday his feeding machine was empty and ringing and no one seemed to care to change it, and yes maybe im being paranoid but I waited to see just how long and rather then them just replacing it the nurse waited till her shift was over for someone else to do it... I was bothered because it took about 40 mins. Also today I walk in and the machine is OFF again and I was concerned. Its not crowded or busy actually and his nurse said she was next door giving ice-cream and she has to order his food. I dont know Im not trying to be nit picky I just wish I could do stuff for him. Any how we are waiting for pharmacy to bring his food which has now been an hour.
Ok so while ive been here and researching I was wondering why the nurse told me he was getting a tracheostomy and peg on Monday because no one even asked us. So I decided to speak with the respiratory therapist who came in and I ASKED him how long can a person say on a vent he said 14 days. Tony has only been on for about 9 days now. So Im wondering is trach and peg necessary but if he really needs it of course I would like him to get it, also I asked about his breathing number on the vent which has been 20-23 and the guy told me it was a good breathe like u and me, so now im just lost. IF his breathing is fine and everything else except hes still in a coma why the trach im just scared thats all and wonder about the risk of surgery or infection. I dont know Im here nervous and just trying to be here for him. Thanks for all the support anyway you guys mean a lot to me. I will go to see my nana after and stay over her hospital and then come back to see Tony for the day again
