Day 1325 of the transplant cycle. So the left cataract surgery was a success! Steve spent most of the day resting. He has the post op appointment tomorrow morning and then the rest of the weekend we are planning to rest and keep Steve out of the bright sunlight. In fact, I think that it is supposed to rain here for most of the weekend. Monday we will meet with the PROSE doctor and then head home.
Steve remined me that I haven't mentioned the potential removal of his chest tube lately and that is because we have pushed to have it left in for a bit longer. We are draining every other day and the rule of thumb for removal is that we have 3 continuous drains of less than 150 milliliters. We are not anywhere near that..... his drains average around 250 milliliters. We are afraid that if we remove it prematurely that the fluid will build like it did before and either cause an infection or have to be drained via a procedure anyway. Until the doctors can figure out exactly what is causing the fluid build-up and can alleviate the cause, we will maintain the fluid levels via the tube.
That's about it for now. Will update before leaving for home.
