It was 16 degrees, sunny, and calm when I took Colin out at 7:45.
The nurse called me yesterday with a couple of updates. Bob was spiking a fever and the fluid in his chest was still a problem. They were going to try to drain the fluid with a needle but ended up putting a chest tube. Since they were not sure if the infection was in the lung or the picc line, they removed it for 24 hours just to be safe.
I checked on him late yesterday afternoon. He was in the chair and they had the vent collar on him instead of the respirator. He temperature was down and he was following commands and mouthing words.The nurse this morning said he had a good night and they were getting ready to put the vent collar back on.
There will not be an update Thursday morning. I am heading to Winston this afternoon and Al is coming up here to take care of Colin.
