****WCGreen Update -- Saturday March 8, 2014****

From his wife:

His lung biopsy showed his new lungs are still healthy. Wonderful!

He still is confused, but can show the hospital staff that he is more with it. Of course, it doesn't help he can't talk because of the trach. This can be problematic. They may ask him a question, he doesn't really answer, and then he is not attended to when it is necessary.

If anyone knows of a job, I'm in dire need of one. Thanks.



To clarify the bit about the trach: He still needs support from the ventilator. He IS breathing on his own, but not enough, so the vent is still in use, just not 100% of the time.

9. Chris could be experiencing "pump brain" or "bypass brain"

Some people put on a heart lung machine experience times of confusion. I hope it passes quickly.

2 of my co-workers had bypass surgery and complained of it but one of them was really no different that I could tell. He was always a bit lost.

11. I'll bet he is.

I'd forgotten about that. I believe it's pretty common.

Thanks for the reminder, my dear TexasProgresive.

12. Hang in there CaliforniaPeggy

That's easy for me to say, but I really mean it.

I just cannot imagine new lungs and the stress
you must be going through. WCGreen has a great
wife.

I have a few medical problems but this reminds
me of the kid with no shoes (me) seeing a kid
with no feet.

Hang in there!

coldbeer

hey, this just takes time, but you will be ok.

19. It is more brutal and slower than I had any idea...

I just did not see how tough it was going to be.

She IS a hero.

Thanks, nadin...
