I just called down there. Mom is with Dad now. They are keeping the chest tube in for a few more days. They are going to try to make Dad more portable by hooking his tubes to some other gadget....so he can move around easier. His lung doctor had not yet been in this morning.
He also now is having kidney stone issues or bladder/kidney infection or both. They are running tests to see what is wrong and how to treat it. He has kidney stones and one really large one that might be causing him problems....not sure if it would be able to pass on its own. It definitely would never make it through a catheter so his bladder would then become blocked and the doctor said he would definitely know if that happened. Then they would have to do surgery to remove the stone!
So when it rains it pours. He sounded pretty good on the phone.....but I know is not feeling great and is in some pain.
