Video Update on Saturday, October 14, 2017
In the previous video, John mentions 3D imaging that they did of his ribs. He asked that they be posted here:
In preparation for a potential rib surgery, the doctors were seeing a small mass in the Pleural area on the right side near the space near the lung and liver. After a thoracentesis procedure in the morning, an infection was discovered and John was asked to head to the emergency room for follow up. The following video is from the Emergency Room.
After a week in the hospital and another chest tube to drain infection, John has returned home (which he affectionately calls the Garrick Rehabilitation Center) to continue his journey of recovery with a small hole in his lung and ribs in need of healing. He arrived home the evening of October 31, 2017. The following video is an update of the past week and clarity around the road map ahead.
