Ki had the chest catheter taken out yesterday.  I should be happy but I am worried that we won’t catch the signs of fluid building up and end up in the ER again.  The lung doctor said that if he notices shortness of breath starting to call and he would set up the thoracentesis.  The increase in some of his meds from the liver specialist has helped significantly with the fluid.  In the last 4 days the catheter was in we only drained it 2x and each time was 2/3-3/4 less fluid than there had been which is a huge improvement.  They had to put him under anesthesia to take it out because scar tissue had started to build up and attach to it.  Essentially it was growing into his body.

I am not doing okay in life lately.  Things just feel like they are crumbling down around me and I am trying to do things to get out there and make things better but I feel like it is all coming from a place of desperation rather than a place of truly wanting some kind of move forward in life.  I am constantly scared about everything.  Not just his health… seemingly everything.  Something good has got to happen soon, that gives me light again because it is so so dark.

    Take care of yourself, honey. You’re no use to Ki if you don’t, but more importantly, you deserve to be okay. Love you.
