Default Re: Come For Tea

Joni- the exhalation tube on his vent disconnected and no alarm sounded. the people there with him didnt notice. his lips and hands turned blue and he passed out. luckily his mom figured it out. i got over there as soon as possible. he was coherant (sp?) but scared. he said he felt like he wasnt getting enough O2 so i switched him from the concentrator to regular O2, thinking this might be better. after about an hour, he was ok- slight headache. but if they hadnt figured it out as quick as they did.....

Scared the living shit out of me. Sometimes, because my PALS cannot get any worse off- i forget that one day he will die. Talk about a slap in the face as a reminder! I shook for 2 days after this... very nervous and all. Finding that im not so comfortable being away from him anymore.
