Lilian's chest tube was successfully removed today.
I got a call from Kwame around 9:30am today with the update. I was able to speak to Lilian, she was happy, I could her the smile in her voice.
I asked her twice if she had any pain when they removed the tube and she assured me, "Madam it did not pain me." She had an X-ray post the procedure to confirm all is OK.
She is spending the night at Ridge and should be discharged tomorrow.
Tomorrow marks day 21 for Lilian's stay at the hospital. Her 9th birthday is on December 21st, I know she will be excited to be going home.
