Chest Tube Out

Another milestone: Barb’s chest tube was removed this morning. After surgery, they leave a tube in to drain blood and fluids out of the chest cavity. It was attached to a large box with tubes so they could measure the amount of fluids. Quite the contraption to have hanging from your body. She’s much lighter now! She’s taken two walks down the long hallway already. Still hoping for her heart to pace without the external machine.
