Things were going well yesterday. They pulled the tube after lunch. This morning I was supposed to get out of the hospital but the X-ray showed a little bit of air. So they ordered another X-ray for early afternoon which showed its continued to progress and the lung collapse is getting worse. So I'm staying and going back to the lab for another chest tube. They will then turn me on to heavier suction and give it some more time to stick. She said if they get this soon they shouldn't have to do the talc again.
Just pray for my lung and attitude. Thanks for all the cards, visits, and prayers. We feel them and appreciate it so much.
