Hello again from Hospital Land!

Namine’s breathing tube was scheduled to be removed today (a process called extubation). Of course the doctors want her alert for this process, since its purpose is to see if she is able to breathe on her own. Toward this end, Namine was supposed to be cut off from any more morphine doses.
You never know what you might find.
You can probably guess what I’m going to say. Yep, two vastly intelligent nurses saw my darling daughter in distress, and they said to themselves, self, this poor child is suffering, and you, yes, only you can ease her pain. with drugs!
You might guess I’m a little peeved. You’d guess right.
And the geniuses gave her two doses of morphine. consequently, they’ve (tentatively) rescheduled her extubation for sometime tomorrow.
Save the whales! Collect them all!
Jessica reminds me to mention that both doses of morphine were completely unnecessary. Both times Namine was in “distress,” she simply needed her diaper changed.
