Default Great News From Glo Ree Bee

I received the following letter this morning.
==========
Good news!

Willem has been moved into a private room and not in ICU anymore and the
painful chest tube has been removed and his oxygen level has already
begun to get higher (it was way too low because the tube was laying
across his left lung).

Willem said it was a big old hard plastic tube (not flexible) about the
size of a water hose. No wonder it caused pain when he tried to deep
breath.

I believe we will finally see lots of improvement now. I am so
thrilled.

Glo

Carole... mind melt... who is Willem? I'm so glad to hear he is feeling better. The tube thing does not sound fun AT ALL!

Kym,
Gloria and her husband Willem are friends of ours. We went to meet them as they departed for a cruise and we have been friends since. Willem had quintuple bypass and I have tried to keep everyone updated as she writes.
