What a difference a day makes!

From our last post, today's goals were:

Remove chest tubes: Done
Walk down hallway on his own: Done (a few times)
Play in Playroom: Never opened, but he would have been there!

Other great milestones today:
IV removed
All medication is now given orally
Eating and drinking what he wants
Sense of humor returned
Breathing is getting stronger
Played on XBox and remembered it!
Learned a new card game and was clear headed enough to remember the rules
Described pain as being a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is the worst pain ever felt personally.

As long as all stays the same and the fluid continues to drain out of his chest as it has been, Nick is coming home tomorrow! (Sunday!) I will post tomorrow as I know more.  Go, Nick!

Thanks everyone, for keeping up the faith!
