I had to ship a kit this morning. While waiting on the mail to show up I hung a few pictures and did a few more household things. Once she arrived I headed down to Winston to check on Bob.

The other chest tube is out but still a lot of gunk in the lungs he is too weak to cough up. The secretions are also still a problem thus the trach is still active. They’ve had him up in the chair yesterday afternoon.

    Excellent, Bob is making progress. Slowly, but moving forward.

    My wife had a mastectomy with a full TRAM flap reconstruction in 2005. She had two chest tubes and two groin tubes in for three or four weeks (it has been a while and I forget even after cleaning them so many times). But her lungs cleared up quick since her heart was strong. And she was 47 years old which also made her stronger.
