goodbye chest tubes

Well they're trying J.J. off of the pacer right now. His heart rate is a little bit on the slow side but it's a sinus rhythm so they're happy with that. It's been a few minutes off the pacemaker but so far so good. They are planning to take the chest tubes out today after some chest physio. He mostly sleeps still so they are going to take him off of the codeine and see how he does on just tylenol. It'd be good if he woke up a little, he needs to drink more. A few times he has woken up pretty agitated saying that he is itchy. They'll change his chest dressing when they take out the tubes so hopefully that'll help. Sounds like they may even be able to let the incision heal open-air.
