In other news, my formerly shy son B. practically mauled departing guest G. in hopes of convincing her to stay longer. (At least that's what I hope he was doing.) Little T. just cried a little. They are so out there with their emotions, and I spend so much time bollixed up.

August 25 hospital post
Still waiting on release. I broke this out from the the main hospital update post to
increase my post count make it more legible. Today's question: Heimlich or Pneumostat... Heimlich or Pneumostat? Super-medical-student W., who apparently risks a testicle if he even discusses medical recommendations to be made by the surgeon, suggests doing research on this crucial pre-release question myself. So I do. After perusing a "helpful guide to mobile chest tube drains," I find myself cold to the whole subject. The Pneumostat sounds better to me, but who knows. At least this time I will know how to use the thing, which I didn't the first first time I left the hospital. Making the plan will involve having an X-ray tomorrow morning and discussing things with the surgeon. Residents have opened hope of going home tomorrow, but I'm too smart to be fooled. Right? Riiiight??
