after getting the chest tube in, he woke up fast and was definitely ready for some grub. we had to wait until xrays came back fine and getting the okay to go back upstairs. he cried the whole way, but once he was able to get some juice in him, he settled down quickly and is now fast asleep.

the tube is outputting a good amount, not a whole lot but enough. this is a nice definitive way to do it, and it's quick too. we don't have to go with the waiting game of using diuretics and hope that it works. this way orion can get comfortable faster and back home.

hopefully we won't need to be here long. saturday will probably be just a day to watch the fluids come out and hopefully by sunday we can go home?! i'm making my own agenda :)

orion still hasn't gotten any pain meds yet, we are waiting for the cardiologist to come in and look at him. hopefully we can get some to him before he wakes up so he's not too uncomfortable.

will post more as things progress.

Sorry to hear Orion is back in the hospital. Praying that this is just a small bump in the road and you will back home in no time.
