chest tube back in....

Well, after taking out the chest tubes, there must have been a pocket of air that was a bit trapped by them, but by an hour after they came out the right lung was leaking a fair bit of air so he's got a pneumothorax so we're going to put a chest drainage tube back in on his right side and we'll be sitting tight for a few days for it to drain out and heal. Right now that lung is partially collapsed.

  1. Praying for you, Krista, and your family. Believe it or not I am a cardiac critical care nurse now, though I don't work at a pediatric hospital. I will be praying for direction and wisdom for the staff, and a quick recovery for JJ. Love and prayers, Anna-Lee
