They couldn't find a good spot to place a new chest tube, so instead, they're going to remove his intracardiac lines (yay!), reduce his sedation, and try to get him up out of bed. This is good! They were saying that they were going to put the CPAP mask back on him, but not sure how that can be reconciled with this new plan.
Update: intracardiac lines are out. He had some bleeding (not unexpected) so he's getting a small blood transfusion right now.
