One tube out, 2 more to go; the catheter came out this morning and we got a nice bedside commode to use. The 2 drains are supposed to come out today as well, but the J-P drain seems to fill up awfully fast to be removed. The nurses emptied it at 6:30 this morning and I see it is already full. Nothing is staying down yet, but guts need to move.
Coughing is easier today so that is a good sign things are healing.
