Default CNN - "Pope likely to have tracheotomy"

Wow this must be serious, I just heard this on TV.

Pray for God's will to be done, and no matter what he does not suffer...

I heard it on the radio. Our Holy Father needs our prayers right now more than ever. It is pretty serious that they are performing this operation. It is also very risky considering his age and current state of health.

Yes. I just saw it on Fox News. The way I understand it, The Parkinsons Disease is not letting him get rid of the congestion so they do a Tracheotomy and remove the mucous so he can breathe. I pray that all will be well, he has been through so much and survived so much! May Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother and ALL The Angels & Saints be with OUR HOLY FATHER and bring him through this.

It does sound serious, usually they would try to intubate him with an endotracheal tube first. The CNN medical correspondent said perhaps it is because his airway is too inflammed to manage the tube. Surely it's a reccurence of the laryngeal tracheitis he suffered from earlier this month.

Pray, Pray, Pray!

In this report, it appears that it is temporary- for a few days only.

tracheotomy: an operation that requires incising (making an incision into) the trachea, usually intended to be temporary. They would then place a tube in that incision to create an an airway for the patient to recieve oxygen through.

the tube comes out through the neck & it would be attached to a ventilator that would deliver oxygen to him through that tube...
