Journal entry by Charlene Johnson

Well we are now dealing with a hydro pneumothorax that does not act like the typical ones the doctors have seen because the lung will not inflate all the way because of scar tissue. Without it inflating all the way they won’t be able to stick it to the chest wall to block the hole. They can’t get the air to evacuate either so they plan on upsizing the chest tube tomorrow then it’s a waiting game again. Last resort is surgical intervention again.

You can imagine Mark’s frustration and mood today. He really needs some prayer and some positive thoughts to keep his spirits is up!
