Today was a tough day for Emily. The pain is at its worst and the medication has not been helping. It just nocks her out. She did sit in a cardio chair for a while but getting her in was very traumatic.
The doctor did say that is not uncommon for heart surgery patients to have some depression on about days 3-4 and this is true of Emily. She will feel much better once all these chest tubes are out. She is hangin' in there and I am sure tomorrow will be much better.
