Mr Trifectagirl's time in the ICU is my second experience of having a close family member in ICU.
On April 2, 2008 my mother suffered a massive brain aneurysm which put her in the ICU for just over a week.
Sadly, the damage was too great, and it was agreed to shift her to a ward for care - she didn't need around the clock monitoring. She never regained consciousness and passed away three weeks later.
As such, I think I put just a little bit of pressure on the ICU staff to send me home with a live one this time round.
It looks like we've managed that.
