Our First Unplanned Trip To A German Hospital

That’s not a bag of urine, beer or ice tea. It’s a litre of fluid drained from Lou’s right lung. The reason she hasn’t been eating and has had 24/7 nausea.

The tube was still attached in the pic, and the bag drained another .5 of a litre making it a rounded 1.5-litre, collected through thoracentesis. A procedure in which a needle is inserted into the pleural space between the lungs and the chest wall to remove excess fluid from the area.

  3. I read Louise’s story the other day and just wanted to say she is a truly inspiring and brave woman. I hope she gets the results she needs from these targeted chemo treatments. Hope she makes a speedy recovery from the lung procedure. Thinking of you guys.

  4. Dominic,
    I am so sorry to read this about Louise. She is in our prayers. We are going through the same type of cancer with my wife.
