Gavin had his chest tube removed today around 11am. I can't even imagine what it felt like to have that thing stuck up there. Lets be completely honest here, I can't imagine any of the pain or discomfort he has been in and is in. After the tube was removed, they took him off morphine this evening and are supplementing with other pain meds.
He is scheduled For an echo and EKG Monday morning. Tomorrow will involve more walking and hopefully eating.
