Tricia is falling to sleep thanks to the help of some morphine and a few other meds. She felt some pain and discomfort during the procedure, but she told me it wasn't as bad as she expected, and just about anything is better than an infection at this point.
(this next part my be TMI for some people) I was in the room, but the surgeon was blocking my view (I wouldn't have looked anyway). But, I did hear the air rush out when the tube was inserted, and saw the blood drain out when they hooked her up to the drainage box.
Thanks to those who were able to check the blog in the past few hours and offer us encouragement and prayer! I'll let you know how she's feeling later today.
Pneumothorax is very common for CFers and tall skinny white boys (seriously).
