Day 11 – Saturday 7th May 2005

Again, didn’t blog today, but hospital records show that today was the day the Tracheostomy was performed. This meant that Karen could have her mouth treated at last. Her tongue was scarred and her mouth was in an awful state. We would put this stuff called Nystatin in on a regular basis and swab and clean out her mouth with sponges on sticks.

This was very therapeutic for us as relatives as it really felt like we were caring for Karen. We had always mopped her brow with cold water and been kissing her all the time, but this really felt like we were doing some good.
