Slow but Sure
This morning things are going fine. Ben pooped last night! Yippee - the pain in his side is not as bad. Today they plan to take out his middle chest tube. He is off the bi-pap and nitric and down to straight c-pap. Hopefully we don't need to go back. They may take out the tube by his lung as well. We are still sucking out thick junk from him. We think he may have had a small cold before surgery. I stayed the night with Ben and got plenty of sleep. I am a heavy sleeper unlike Dan. Melba, Steve, Kate, and Elizabeth visited yesterday. The McCarthy's are back up and Ally stayed with them last night. I think Ben's lungs just need to recover from the cold and change in pressure. Thanks for all the support.
