Well, the chest tube came out late this afternoon. It did not bring the longed for pain relief though. It was buried a length of over 20 cm under my ribs, so I guess it might take a while.
Can’t believe I’ve been here almost a week. Not sure when I will be going home. A few more diagnostic puzzles to try to solve and then I need to be able to get around better than I can now. Very weak. Still feeling very determined though, by the grace of God.
