Dan had chest xrays, and the doctor looked over all his scans and xrays from other hospital. He says there is a slight fluid build up, but it looks as though it is working itself out. What is causing all Dan's problems right now is the fact that he is not moving enough. He wants him up and walking 10 an hour, not 10 minutes every couple of hours. He does not want Dan sitting in an upright position. He has to lay down when he is not up walking. He said Dan has a lazy lung causing his breathing problem. The lazy lung is due to Dan's ribs hurt so much, he is not taking deep enough breath's of air. Dan is to use a portable breathing machine, 10 breathes an hour to strengthen his lungs. The swelling in his throat is because he is taking too many percosets. 2 every couple of hours. Doctor said NO. Take 2 every 6 to 8 hours. That Dan wouldn't be in so much pain if he were laying down and not sitting up. He needs rest, not sitting up and watching tv. So, we will see how this doctor's order's are in Dan's healing process. The physical therapist was suppose to come last week and still hasn't showed up. Tomorrow I will contact them. Emma is too nice on the phone, lol. SO now she gets a call from mother in law. If she cannot handle this job, I want the name and number of her supervisor so I can get him another therapist who can handle it. That's about it so far. Thank you for your prayers. I know they work, because they sent Dan home. You guys are the best!!!!
Love to all..........Cindy
