If my day was on NASA TV

ME: *shpsh* 
I'm, uh, grabbing this size 2 pamper here, over. *shpsh*

HUBS:  *shpsh* Do you have *shpsh* the wipes? *shpsh*

ME: *shpsh* Over on my left hand side *shpsh* I see them *shpsh*

NARRATOR: Kari is attempting to, uh, grab the diaper from her right side while simultaneously holding down a squirming child and protecting her face.

ME: *shpsh* gonna have to skip steps 6-8 *shpsh* Move straight to clean up *shpsh*

HUBS: Can I bring you a towel? *shpsh*

ME: *shpsh* And *shpsh* sanitizer please. *shpsh*

NARRATOR: A slight complication in the mission, as the child has both peed on his mother's arm and turned over on the changing table, attempting escape.

HUBS: *shpsh* I agree with your plan *shpsh* sanitizer ready. *shpsh* Good luck.

ME: *shpsh* diaper is *shpsh* successfully *shpsh* on.

HUBS: *shpsh* Ready to move *shpsh* on to trach care *shpsh*

ME: Let's do it. *shpsh*

NARRATOR: With the diaper successfully secured, the parentalnauts will attempt the tricky manuever of cleaning child's neck, replacing trach ties and polymem dressing, without dislodging trach.

HUBS: *shpsh* can you please hold *shpsh* the trach down *shpsh* while I remove the ties? *shpsh*

ME: Affirmative. *shpsh*

HUBS: *shpsh* One side down, one to go. *shpsh*

ME: Do you have *shpsh* the Nystatin powder? *shpsh*

HUBS: *shpsh* already applied to *shpsh* the new *shpsh* ties. *shpsh*

ME: Perfect. Nice job. *shpsh*

HUBS: *shpsh* Peroxide mixture handy? *shpsh*

NARRATOR: The clean-up activity continues, as the child's neck area is swabbed with a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and sterile water and then swabbed again with just water.

ME: *shpsh* too much torque on the polymem. *shpsh* I think it will be fine with this tear, though. *shpsh*

HUBS: *shpsh* should be fine. *shpsh*

ME: New ties *shpsh* ready to *shpsh* be applied. *shpsh*

HUBS: *shpsh* copy. *shpsh* Do you have the paci? *shpsh*

ME: He won't take it *shpsh* he's too angry. *shpsh*

NARRATOR: The mission becomes precarious as the child is angered by the changing of the trach ties. His arms break loose from the swaddling, threatening the success of the mission.

HUBS: *shpsh* Is there a glow *shpsh* worm handy? *shpsh* Anything? *shpsh*

ME: *shpsh* I can *shpsh* flash my *shpsh* boobs.

HUBS: Win for *shpsh* both of *shpsh* us. [pause] *shpsh* trach ties secured.

ME: *shpsh* final tie tightening *shpsh* done. *shpsh* Mission complete. *shpsh*

NARRATOR: The child's trach care has now been completed. There will now be an attempt at feeding. At 2:12pm central time, the crew will attempt to administer 1ml oral Cipro to child. Surely, an arduous, yet historic event.

  1. Fantastic delivery. Too funny. There was also wayward pee launched in my house today. Poor dog got hosed. Who knew a 6 month old could pull that kind of distance?
