Today is day 5. Larry is moving right along. It is quite amazing. Yesterday thay removed his NG tube, chest tube, epidural, and cath. He is still quite weak and gets out of breath easily. He did have a small pneumothorax yesterday, they believe it is resolving on its own. He is starting on clear liquids today, however it is not going very well. Also they have tried to increase tube feeding but had to back off. If he continues to stay on the mark he will be home Friday afternoon. My main concern is all of the coughing and the difficulty he has trying to get it out. How long does this usually last for?
