Iain's Orders

Is that we need a much better photo. This is from yesterday on the roof top garden with Sarah Dorman wearing his new Adidas hoodie from the professional climber Libby Sauter who is also interestingly enough a pediatric ICU nurse.

Today was a better day for Iain in the sense that he was not suffering from the nausea that he has had for a few days.  This would be good news normally but it is most likely related to the fact he stayed on the vent all day due to the procedure to change the location of the chest tubes.  A bit of a double edged sword.  Nevertheless, it looks like the new location of the chest tubes is a big hit with the lungs.  The tubes are bubbling away and I think the last XRay saw a decrease in the pneumothoraces. Yippee!  Although the night time physicians have just come in to burst my bubble and tell me that they will have to stay in for a few more days (which I had realized would be the case as nothing about Iain is a quick fix).

    The hoodie looks sharp, Iain! Hope the chest tubes do their job and you can get on with it. :)
