Dads Recovery Update

More Good News….

As of noon today the Surgeon determined that Dads quick recovery and clean x-ray from this morning meant that he was ready to have the lung tube removed (The source of most of the major pain Dad was having)

Then He also determined that Dad could have his catheter and a few other extra access tubes removed later today and that means that he will be tube free except for the IV drip and may be headed home as soon as tomorrow. (Saturday)

Because the lung drain has been removed, Dad is feeling much better and a big portion of the pain is gone.

He Still has the IV with the “Happy Button” that he can use every 12 minutes!

We are still waiting on the lab results and should know by 5:00pm if we need to wait until Monday for the final results.

Over all Dad is feeling much better and in good spirits, you can tell because hes giving the hospital staff a dose of his unique humor 🙂

More updates soon when we get lab results and a final release date.

Check the upper right hand corner for both Mom and Dads contact info for calls and text messages for well wishes!

Thanks for all your prayers, they seem to be working!
