Another day in ICU
We thought Lonye would be moved to the floor today. There were no rooms available, so he's still in ICU. He did get one chest tube removed today. That's not something you want to watch if you have a weak stomach!! His only comment was "one down, three to go". He won't be released from the hospital until all four have been removed. We are hoping that will be some time this weekend. There's still alot of work ahead. But, he's determined to get his life back as soon as he can.
The only concern the docs have so far is that his CO2 level is too high. Hopefully, they will be able to get that figured out soon.
Thanks to every one who has called, emailed & posted a comment here. Lonye reads every one of them. It means alot to him that there are so many people concerned about us.
I have met many of the families of other patients in the ICU...sadly, Lonye is certainly the exception, not just in his recovery. We have so many friends and family who have stepped up to help us. There are folks in this ICU that don't even have family members who come to visit. We feel so blessed!!!! Thank you all again. Love, Deanna
