Joe and I were called to the hospital during the night to see our 1 year old with the chest tube. She had been doing great and we were contemplating removing her tube in the next couple of days. She developed sudden breathing difficulties during the night and had developed a major air leak from her lung. We ascertained her tube was functioning properly. There was no one available to take an x-ray until this morning and she passed away as the x-ray was being obtained.
It was difficult for us wondering what we could have done differently to change the outcome but nothing compared to what mom and grandma have to endure.
Our prayers are with the family today.
