Journal entry by Charlene Johnson

Mark started to get sore about 11:00 last night and it got pretty bad through about 6:00 this morning. They have him on a morphine pump and he can push the button every 8 minutes and he is. The Dr. said that the scar tissue from the bleb had already adhered itself to the heart, diaphragm and chest wall it was taking up 1/3 of the lung area and was making it so the rest of the lung could not expand. He slept a lot yesterday after surgery so he didn’t sleep real well last night but is pretty comfortable right now and said that it feels like it is easier to breathe.
