Tubes Out

Connie got his chest tubes out a little after 8:30 this am. I don' think the versed really kicked in until afterward, but oh well. It was pretty quick. He also got his pacer wires out and is scheduled to be in the echo lab like five minutes ago. He's pretty wobbly after the sedation so we'll ride down together in a wheelchair. His prescriptions have been called down to the pharmacy so now it's just a matter of waiting to see how is x-ray looks tomorrow and getting his pacer interrogated before we can bust out of here.

Bust a move, girl! So glad to hear he's doing so well!!! Looking VERY forward to seeing you all soon! Let us know when you know you'll be home, and we can coordinate some meals. The LAST thing you need to think about right now is DINNER!!! :)
Love and hugs,

Oh thank goodness those mean old chest tubes are out. I'm sure he's going to be so much more comfortable! Keeping fingers crossed for a good echo!

Looks like great news! His eating habbits sound just like Nathan's - doesn't want to touch anything one minute, then acting like he's starving the next!
