Tuesday morning update on Dad.....


The chest tube will NOT be removed today. The surgeon wants to come in and perform another TALC procedure Wednesday to try to make sure the lung will be covered completely this time and they have not missed any spots....

so that is scheduled for Wednesday....no idea when the tube will come out. Maybe the day after or Friday. No idea when he will come home...and a nurse told dad this morning she did not want to alarm him but when they pull the chest tube ...that can sometimes cause the lung to collapse again.

Hope all goes well tomorrow! He's been through so much already. Tell him he'd better get well soon as there are a lot of women (and a few men) waiting for him back in blogland!

You are doing a great job in keeping us all informed. I'm sure your parents are very grateful and very proud of you, too!

(((((( HUGS ))))))

I hope Abraham will get better very soon so that he can be with his family for Christmas. Tell him hello from France. I give him a big hug.

Oh great! If she doesn't want to alarm him she shouldn't tell him! Tell Abe we all miss him. He's the best bird photographer I know! Still remembering you all in prayer.

Thanks so much Melinda for the update. Once again, we all pray for Abraham. Sounds like the surgeon knows what he's doing and he's doing the least invasive, at least for starters. Do please keep us posted but of course, know we think of you and your family.
