The bad is watching him in pain. He is miserable and acts like he is jumping out of his skin. And his oxygen levels drop. Which leads me to the ugly....
The removal of the chest tube was visually upsetting but the 12 hour aftermath was worse. Watching him stat at 64 for a short amount of time while turning gray was the worst part of our recovery so far. It was only a few minutes but will last for a lifetime in my brain.
As usual life in any ICU is a roller coaster and this ride has had enough excitement for me and I am ready to get off.
Hoping tomorrow looks more like the attached photos than the images embedded in my mind.
