quick update

Recommended Posts

Hey all, well here is the latest. My pop-pop is still in the hospital. He was put on oxygen for the first time today. His scans show no new growth. He has a bunch of fluid around his heart and in his lungs. They are going to give him a lasic (sp???) to help get rid of the fluid. I think they are trying to determine where and what the root of the fluid buildup is. I guess this is going to be a day by day process. I guess the most upsetting thing for me is not knowing what will happen next....fingers crossed until next time!

I would think A pleural effusion? would be a better solution though but I do not know all your dads medical details. This procedure basically puts in a tube to drain fluid out of Lining around Lungs and Heart. Fairly simple in MOST cases but then again I dont know all of dads Medical history. Hope he is feeling better real soon
