There are now four doctors from three different hospitals collaborating on Michelle's lung situation. A Thoracic surgeon, Respiratory therapist and two Internal specialists. The lung hasn't collapsed in the last two days but she has been hooked up to suction for both of those days. The consciences is that to keep the chest tube in for another 36 hours which brings us to Friday. On Friday morning the doctor is going to clamp the hose and see if the lung is stable for the next 24 hours. If it is they pull the chest tube out and off to home sweet home we go. If it re collapsed its off to see the Thoracic surgeon to staple off the top of the lung.....we hope it doesn't get to this because that equals a two week recovery at best. Cross your fingers and toes for Michelle please.
