Tony posted the following this morning......
Sorry it's taken so long to update.
Saturday they inserted a small chest tube called a pigtail into my right lower lobe to drain off some fluid. 1800cc s of fluid! It was very painful once the freezing wore off. So I was pretty doped up the rest of the day.
Sunday, my BP dropped because they are trying to pull off the huge amount of fluid I have on my body. My hemoglobin was also down so they gave me a blood transfusuion.
Monday felt woosy all day...they are trying to get me to walk a lot to help with the fluid.
Tuesday...the pigtail came out on the right and they put one in on the left. Not as much fluid but it will help the lung.
My big news....I have been sitting here for the past hour ON NO OXYGEN!!!!!!
I'm exctatic! It has all been worth it.
Thank you all for your love, emails, support and good wishes.
Sounds like you're moving right along and congratulations Toni.... our thoughts and prayers are with you!
Toni, glad things are improving, sorry they had to re do the tubes, I heard that that can be so painful but glad its done and over and hope that each day your feeling better and better. Sending lots of healing prayers to you.
