We think he should be moving to a floor this evening. Not exactly sure what time. Sad he can’t go back to his suite on 8!
He is doing awesome, appears to be very aware and retaining all information. His chest tube has been removed along with several lines (iv) and I am in the waiting room until that process is done. He is happy the chest tube is out, because it was causing the most pain. The left lung is partially collapsed from the tumor, but the doctors said it would heal itself. Other than that all numbers are looking great.
I’m thinking of bringing yoga mats in here and putting a sign that says mediation in progress. This whole waiting room experience is more aggressive then trying to get on a flight and find carry on space. What happened to indoor voices?
