For all your prayers! I can't tell you how much it means to me. It was another very long day, but the operation is over and when I left a little after 9:00 he was doing ok. The doctor said the operation went well. The Bleb(which is like a blister on the lung and is what pops and makes the lung collapse) was bigger than he anticipated, but he removed it and then they use some kind of sticky talcum powder and put that on the lung and when it is inflated, it adheres to the chest wall I believe. This will prevent it from collapsing again if he ever has another problem.
He was very disoriented after coming out of the anesthesia, but he said one nurse did a good job at bringing him back to reality. It's not like him though. He usually comes out of it relativey easy and is cracking jokes. I waited until they gave him something for the pain and then I left. I will go back early tomorrow to see him.
The doctor gave me a glossy colored picture of the bleb on the lung but I won't share that here. It's a little too graphic for some stomachs, but I certainly find it facinating lol.
Well, I am tired and hungry, but I wanted to come on here and thank each of you for your thoughts and prayers. We all thank you! He will be in for a few more days to make sure there aren't any more leaks. I will let you know how he does.
I certainly hope everyone is having a great week! I want to see some updates on all your blogs of things you have been making!
