He got to go to the playroom yesterday evening after we moved. That is some really good medicine!!! He was pretty uncomfortable, but getting up and moving around is all a part of getting better.

Lookout Picasso! You've got some competition! He was really worn out here and starting to hurt
Here's a funny that this picture reminded me of. Yesterday when the doctor was examining him, Zach held up his foot and said, "I think you need to smell my foot!" What a funny boy!
They will be removing his middle chest tube in a few minutes I hope, so he will be much more comfortable. The middle tube is much stiffer than the other two and usually causes much more pain than the other two. They will give him some happy drugs for the procedure and he is ready for a nap, so I hope he will be able to get some rest.
The doctor told Zach that he had to go to the playroom and take his medicine, so hopefully he will heed doctor's orders. The doctor said there is no way to predict how long the drainage will take --- could be 3 days or 8 days. Quite a difference there. We'll take 3, thank you very much. Thank you for your prayers for a quick recovery.
