It finally came to a head and they needed to do something get him back on track. They decided to put his chest drain back in. In there words "a ton" of fluid came out of the chest cavity where stuff had been before surgery moved it all and now his body is filling the space with fluid. This was putting so much pressure on his lungs that he couldn't properly inflate them. He immediate showed signs of improvement and a few hours later into Friday night his gas levels where back were they wanted them to be. They were trying to get away with not placing the tube in because of the risk of infection and because he will most likely have this drain in for several weeks as his body naturally heals.
It is clear that he is still in a great deal of pain and they still cannot touch him without upsetting him. He just needs some rest now. Hopefully this is the corner we have all been waiting to turn and he will start to show signs of improvement.
