So we are now 4 weeks in and this morning my dad was meant to go down for a tracheostomy. Unfortunately that hasn't happened as the surgeons were dealing with an emergency. My mum seems to be getting increasingly more depressed about the whole situation. I try to tell her to keep positive, especially in front of him and the staff! I'm so worried they are all giving up on him. The latest is they are still not sure of the site of the sepsis, his temperature still keeps spiking and concerned he is getting weaker. I am just hopeful that after the tracheostomy he can be sedated less.
