Chris is getting better and better!
After the surgery, he had two wires connected to his heart. They were there in case they needed to attach a pacemaker to regulate his heartbeat. This morning, the doctor removed those two wires.
He also had two big tubes in his chest for drainage. One of those was removed this morning, too.
The big news is that the catheter is out and he has urinated. YEAY! This was a big concern because he had a terrible experience with the catheter after the December dialysis site surgery.
Dr. Gomez-Abraham told Chris that the 2nd chest tube will likely come out tomorrow and he may be able to go home as early as Monday. Wow! I wrote down the phone & fax numbers to the DaVita pharmacy so the doctor can get his meds ordered.
