Praise God! Missy went home last night. The second procedure went well on Monday. All together the doctors removed almost one entire gallon of fluid from her chest. As you can imagine, she is breathing a lot better. They are going to start doing chest x-rays every 3-4 weeks to make sure the fluid isn’t accumulating and if it is they will take care of it right away.
She also received one blood transfusion during her hospital stay. Her white blood cell count was up to 21,000 (average is 11,000) the following day but they weren’t too concerned with it.
Hopefully these regular checkups will prevent this from happening again but we will keep you updated.
Keep up the prayers. They are working 🙂
