So yesterday was a really bad day. I spent most of it crying. Dad snapped at me and told me to shut up and said I interfere and talk to the doctors too much. I know its usual for patients to be snappy and moody but it was just the final straw for me. After worrying and putting my life on hold for so long this is the thanks I get. At least now he is near to home I could walk out and drove and got my mum to deal with him. We were saying I guess we are used to the doctors talking to us over him (while he was sedated) and we felt it was down to us to ask the questions but now it must be frustrating for him. Lesson learnt I shall butt out from now on. Latest tests yesterday showed his left vocal chord is paralysed and he can't swallow - therefore can't have normal food. Has anyone else experienced this after intubation and tracheotomy? Feel really down right now
