3rd Day Post Op!

Mike and I made it up to UVA today to see Dad. He’s up and moving around some and doing well overall. He still has his chest tube in and I think we will feel much better once that comes out. He said that his pain is minimal unless he coughs or sneezes and then it is through the roof. He is trying to get up and walk at least 3 times a day.

Dad is in 2 medical studies here, so we did get to meet one of the med students that is working on one of the studies.  He looked like such a baby, but obviously knows what he is doing!  Everyone that we have met has been super kind and caring and we are so thankful for the care that he is receiving.  

We don’t expect Dad to be released before Tuesday or Wednesday next week. Keep saying prayers for comfort and continued control of pain. ❤️
