All Out of Sorts
I couldn't seem to concentrate today. Slouched through the morning like a zombie... a listless, tired, bad-tempered zombie. Spent the afternoon trying to resurrect myself with caffeine and sugar, which is no doubt going to make me feel even worse.
So, let's go with a happy story. Didn't recognise the kid making all the noise today, but man did he have some lungs on him. Turns out he'd just been 'decannulated' (had his tracheostomy removed). Wasn't a fan of breathing the normal way, after a couple of years of having a plastic tube.
Then his parents were saying hi to me as I was wandering around the room doing equipment checks, and I realised I'd looked after him when he'd first had the trach put in, and for quite awhile if memory serves.
So we fixed one. Cool.
