Late Again

So here I am again fresh out of the hospital after another surgery. This is getting to be a nasty habit. In the hope of blocking the air leaks in my lungs, they put in four stents. To get to my lungs, they put a large tube down my throat. I don't remember a thing about it because they somehow put me under, though I don't remember them giving me anything. I'm sorry to report the stents didn't make much difference because they couldn't find the main area of leakage. I was really hoping to get rid of the chest tube, but I guess it wasn't meant to be and it's still there. It's not painful, it's just a pain in the ass. They kept me overnight for observation and I was released on Tuesday around noon. The closest thing to pain is a sore throat, and even that is pretty much gone now. The doctors seem to think it's going to be a waiting game to see what, if anything, they can do to get the tube out of my chest. I was supposed to call and set-up an appointment with the doctor, but I keep forgetting. Maybe tomorrow.
