So the tracheotomy went well from what I understand. I have not spoken to Lea the nurse since, just Heath. It sounds as if her central line in her right subclavian stayed put. It looked pretty close to where the trach would go to me, but Heath said it looked as if everything is in the same place.
2nd opinion coming from this doctor this afternoon on the feet.
