They will leave the chest tubes in for now as they are still draining some and removing pacer wires could cause some bleeding. If the tubes stop draining, they may still remove them before the wires. Billy has put in a request that they save the chest drainage tubes so he can use them for fuel lines on his motorbike!
He woke up for a minute and was kicking and grumpy but is back to sleep. Hopefully he'll stay in good spirits today. If I'm with him he asks for dad and if Billy's with him he asks for mom... but he does that when we're home too. He likes the non-stop party.
