On Monday morning we decided to go to the emergency room right away because Derek was feeling a lot worse. There was a lot of pressure and pain. We didn't have to wait long in the ER (thankfully); however, we got the news that he had a pneumothorax on his left side very fast. His left lung was collapsed and the air was making it hard to breathe. As soon as we knew it, there was a doc putting in a chest tube.
Derek stayed that night in the hospital. Derek had a great recovery and started feeling a lot better the next day. After a chest x-ray, the thoracic surgeon gave Derek the ok to get the tube removed.
Unfortunately Derek feels a little under the weather today but we are hoping that he starts getting back to normal tomorrow!
Again, thanks so much for all the thoughts! Stay tuned tomorrow for MAJOR updated house pictures! And later, yummy recipes, new (long-over-due) Sephora makeup reviews, and some fun facts for you!
Have a good rest of the week!
