Tubes are out!

They pulled his intracardiac line about 2 hours ago, and his chest tubes and pacer wires just now. He was pretty unhappy during the procedure, but should be a lot more comfortable now (he's asleep at the moment...they gave him a morphine dose right before they pulled the tubes).

So now he's just got an oxygen cannula, 1 IV, and his heart rate and oxygen monitors. Next time I get to talk to the docs I'm going to try to find out what else he still has to do to get out of here.


  1. Yay! I think he's done enough to get out of there, so you can tell the doctors about my vote!

  2. Good news! We were going to try to come by today, but Steven woke up congested and sneezing. Going to wait until tomorrow to make sure I remain symptom-free. Glad to hear things are going well.
