Still here

Well, we had hoped we would be back in Roanoke today. Everything was moving on track for us to be discharged. However, after her chest xray this afternoon, they noticed her lung was not fully expanded and they want to make sure there is no leak from the surgery. Sometimes this can happen when the tube is removed or there is a small leak from the staples. So another night here at Duke.  She will increase her walking distance and breathing with her spirometer to see if her lungs will fix this on their own. She will have another xray tomorrow to show her progress. Small step back, but after the dust has settled, she is still determined to get back home soon. Thanks again for everyones support.
