I guess doctors have a set list of questions to ask whenever they do post-op rounds at the hospital. Most of our questions are answered with the medical history sheet I provide everyone. (Why, yes, I do in fact bring multiple copies with me so that I can give them to anyone who needs one! And, yes, I do in fact update it regularly!)
But the one question that I didn't think to explicitly answer on my paper is:
Has she ever had any other surgeries?
No...she was born this way. Don't all babies have tracheostomy tubes and a gastrostomy tube???
Every single resident who saw us (which was everyone who saw us besides our two surgeons, who already knew her) asked us this question! DUH people!!
I guess I'll be editing my medical history to add this little question.
