Journal entry by Charlene Johnson

The doctors came in this morning and said his pneumothorax was larger. So they took him down to reposition his chest tube and put a slightly larger one in. Two steps forward and one step back. The doctors are going to talk to the surgeons again and see what they can do about this temperamental lung. When he is strong enough they will probably remove it.

It is not unheard of for people to live with one lung so we are hopeful that his left lung will heal and pick up the slack.

Mark is doing great eating and has a normal diet. Tube feeding will likely be stopped soon.
