The PA just came in and said my xray from this morning showed no change and the doctors are all pretty confident it's time to take out my last chest tube. WOO HOO!!! My tube is getting pulled in about 20 minutes. After it's out I have to stay still in my bed for an hour and will be closely monitored. Then at 2pm today I will have another xray. If all looks fine, I actually could go home later this afternoon!! (I about fainted when she said that. I guess I really had convinced myself that it wouldn't be happening for awhile.) So, today, July 6th could be the big day. Crossing our fingers! For now, I need to hurry and eat breakfast, use the bathroom, etc. because once the tube is out, I really can't move for an hour while I'm in my bed. So, better go. Will update after 2pm once I hear the results from my xray. SO excited!!!!!
