Grandma's first Trach change

My mom/grandma got to do her first trach change and I helped with ties. She did it instead of me because she is normally here on weekends and they don't do trach changes on the weekends unless it is an emergency.
The change went well! I was more panic'd then my mom was(just because it was so red). I cut the trach,ties she pulled the trach out, I wiped the stoma, she put the new trach back in and I did the trach ties. I change the trach in Wensday and then after that I can take her out for walks!

The plan for moving to Victoria is the first or second week of July. Depending when we finish the ventilator classes. That's like no notice, I can't wait for us to be in new doctors hands!
