Update;day 4

Update: this is my 4th night in the hospital. Surgeon did not remove the chest tube today as was planned. For some reason it has stopped suctioning the fluid and this mornings xray showed more/new fluid building.

He is keeping the tube in me one more night and having me lie in different positions (that hurt) and do walking/breathing exercises to help it drain.

I asked what happenes if it continues to build but not drain?? Either it will be a small enough amount that I can live with it or I have to do this while procedure again!
Your prayers for healing of this fluid and my energy to do what I need to do to help it along. Writing this just wiped me out :)
Thanks for the luv amd spport! Elayne
