The final chest tube came out about an hour ago, as well as the pacer wires to her heart. All that is left is an IV in her foot. She is happy and calm. They gave her a dose of morphine when the chest tube came out so she is a bit loopy, but once she sleeps that off the only pain meds she will be on is Tylenol. Plus, the nurse just told us to pack because we are moving up to the general floor. No more continuous monitoring. She is doing fantastic.
She continues to amaze us with how well she is doing, Charlotte is one tough cookie!
