Yesterday was a good day because the rest of the drain tubes and such came out. Mom was able to walk to the restroom and out in the hall a short way. By evening however she was very tired and did not get much sleep last night. Today, Sunday she was short of breath and they found that some fluid was gathering around the lungs. They decided rather quickly to put a couple drain tubes back in and she just returned from that procedure and looks much more comfortable aside from increasing discomfort around where the procedure was performed today. She did eat a little food but now the nurse is limiting her to only one visitor at a time so that she can get some rest. All things considered she's doing remarkably well.
