Thursday 12/4 UPDATE:

Doc just came in, and fluid drainiage has slowed down considerably so they will be using the talc this afternoon.

This means they'll be inserting the talc/medicine into the chest wall so it can start to try and seal up the space between the lungs and the chest wall.

Sounds like they'll then pull the actual tube out tomorrow morning and Ill hae to start my breathing exercizes asap.

Thats all I really know for now - more tomorrow.
