Zeb update for 2/27:

The left chest tube was removed today. The preliminary chest x-ray looked good, however, when the Dr. went back in and looked at the x-ray on a different computer he noticed a small pocket of blood/fluid (hemothorax). Further x-rays will be done at 8PM and in the AM. If the pocket is still there or is any bigger then a CT scan will be done. Just when we thought things were looking up this morning for a possible discharge tomorrow, the roller coaster took another turn. We are thankful the Dr. double checked the x-rays though because Zeb needs to be ready for the long drive home when the time is right. He is unable to fly due to his lung issues and the problems the change in altitude could cause. Thank you for your continued prayers for Zeb's complete healing!
