He is off all IV medicine and is doing great with just Motrin. They just took him off suction, will take another x-ray tonight to make sure he is doing good off suction (boy, I hate all these x-rays) and then maybe be able to pull the chest tube tomorrow. At the very earliest maybe we can go home tomorrow evening but I'm guessing the discharge date will probably be Tuesday.
Once again, I forgot another important occasion. I called my husband this morning to talk and only realized after I talked to him that I forgot to say "Happy Birthday". My husband turned 33 today. I didn't even get to give him a birthday hug. So sweetie, if you are reading this...Happy Birthday and I Love You!
I'm trying to continue taking this one day at a time. I've been in here so long that it feels like a prison. I hope that we are paroled soon. Thank you all again for all your prayers and well wishes...at times you are my only connection to the outside world!
