Ron and others. It wasnt necessarily a plumbing failure. Rapid restriction of the right lung. So -6 convoluted hose draining into a box. Now the big tube is out, and a smaller drain into container. All appear to be working like its supposed to. I can attest that suffocating is not fun. And the anxiety that goes with it, just hugely complicates things. But do to a fabulous medical staff and and several pretty nurses, in case you were wondering, ill probably go home early on the week. Dont want to overdo and have a relapse.
Sincere thanks for all the best wishes.

Tom

Default Epilogue--

Not necessarily RV related, but will be----I came home Friday afternoon. Several boxes stackedup of things to do---not sure what yet, but from clients. YES--as soon as I get alittle more strength I'll handle them. Promise.
I tried to forward most of the pressing email traffic to Steve so he could help process things. I have some in the order of like 75 that I need to go over. Ya'll---please be patient YES----I will get to all of them.

I'll say here again for the record, the RV community is the BEST. Your thoughts and prayers mean so much, its motovating.

So first nite "jitters" its this really going to work? Will I breathe when I sleep without the oxygen? Well apparently so, because I'm writinng this on Saturday morning. The sun came up, some planes are flying at 3J1, so maybe all is well.
Going to be on antibotics for a couple of weeks and more follow up DRs appointments than I remember seeing DRs for---but whatever.

To those of you in the medical community----Heroes all. You dont get enough credit when lives are saved. 2 times now, Ive been on the verge of disasterous consequenses, and each time Drs nurses and specialty staff have brought me back so I could make some contribution. All of you need to stand up and be recognized.

We take alot of things for granted these days, I know I do/did. Hug a Dr, Hug a nurse, Hug a respiratory therapist, hug the CNA that wakes you up aout of the best sleep youve had to take your vitals and then says go back to sleep. Yeah right----BUT--she/he is doing an important job that seems pretty annoying to someone that was sleeping. Now that I've seen a broader picture, all of you are a team. From the Dr that I gave a hard time about the chest tube procedure hurting, to the late nite radiology shift doing chest xrays and CTs on me, to the nite nurse who was helping me get well, while her husband is in chemo------All of your dedication is way beyond the call of duty. I appreciate all of you alot more.

Tom
