Friday May 8, 09 day four of hospitalization
Val was talking and cheery during our converstion this morning. Alison was there before going to work. Dad arrived around 10am and stayed until 2:30 -3:00. Rudy and Lea came around 2 until 4:430. Baine and Denise went back for the evening until 9 pm as Val was dozing after taking the pain medication. Val was given adheisve/glue or flora to attempt to keep the lung inflated. She had to stay 30 minutes on her back and each side to let the glue move around the lung. Her most pain is the chest tube right now. She hasn't had a bowel movement in 3 days so she took her Miralax again this evening. She has a bedside commode because she is still off her coumadin blood thinner. We are hoping the chest tube is coming out tomorrow on Saturday. If she can get up and waking after we pray she will be home on Monday or Tuesday.
Love and Prayers to Val always.......Salynn
