Hello friends and family! I had to go to the emergency room Friday afternoon for chest pain and trouble breathing. I had my surgery early Sat. morning and currently have a chest tube and medi-port in.My surgeon drained a lot more fluid from the lung again and it continues to drain with the tube in. I have had ups and downs with pain but overall seem to be doing well.
My surgeon came in this morning and told me I have a partial collapse on both of the lungs. So, he took me straight off the morphine so I would have the energy to sit up in the chair and walk the floor. This will help the healing process. My kids also found it quite amusing to see me go through withdrawel from the meds. :)I am on something not quite so powerful now :)
The tube went in early Sat. morning and will be taken out tomorrow. The port remains for chemo.
Chris and the boys have been by my side taking great care of me along with my parents and friends. I truely appreciate all of you and your prayers for our family.
Looks like a long road ahead of me/us. I am sure we will all keep you up to date as we can. This is the most I have been able to concentrate on in one sitting, so enough for now ♥ elayne
