It feels so strange not to have to "suit up" in a gown, gloves and mask! Daniel's chest has successfully been closed. I must admit that I became so used to suiting up, my inner germ-phobia makes me want to continue!
My friend Carmen and I scurried off to 11:45 mass while Jimmy waited with Bubba and Grandpa for the surgery to finish. We came back to a happy report that all went well.
They will monitor him closely, especially in the area of blood pressures. In a few days, hopefully his lungs will have cleared enough for him to be switched from the oscillating ventilator (short bursts of air) to a traditional ventilator (longer bursts of air). Right now, we pray for healing of all organs so his body can move towards the next steps. Thank you for standing by our man:)
