I'm rejoicing that I get to hold Lexi, Wesley, Whitley, and Lainey soon. We've seens pictures, skyped, and emailed, but that just isn't the same.
Yesterday, they pulled out the left lung chest tube, and there is a small pneumothorax that occurred since then, but they appeared unworried because it was small enough. As for the right side, they took the suction off at 6:30 this morning and will clamp it later today and take an x-ray Saturday morning. If everything looks fine at that x-ray, they will discharge us from the hospital in the afternoon. Please pray the lungs stay inflated.
I know I should be excited to get out of here, but then that poses the reality that I will be more in charge of Derek. Pray I can be up for the challenge.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. The weather is beautiful here!
