Today's(Well..So Far) update on Jim......

Jim called me this morning to wish me a Happy Birthday...he couldn't talk long but his voice seemed a bit stronger than yesterday. He said that he'd had another bad night. His blood oxygen level kept going down, his chest hurt and he was having trouble breathing...walking was difficult. He had people in his room all night long...from the surgeon's office, Pulmonology, and his nurses. This morning they're going to put a small tube into his lung to let the accumulated gunk in there drain out. They've changed his antibiotics in the IV and they've increased the amount of oxygen he's getting. He said not to come to the hospital until around noon....by then he'll be back in his room. He doesn't deserve all of this.

No, he doesn't deserve this. Let's hope he is letting those doctors learn a lot from all of this.
