I guess that John wanted to give us all a good scare yesterday, lol. He went into work feeling just fine and then called me in severe pain later saying he couldn't breathe. I honestly thought it was just anxiety. John has panic attacks quite often. He hangs up and I text him about an hr. later to check on him. His dad immediately calls me and says that they are in the ER with him. His dad happened to be at his work since they have been working on his Cheville. His dad told me not to come up yet with the roads the way they were, and b/c he wanted to make sure it wasn't just anxiety as well. He also knew I would have to find someone to keep the boys. He calls me back as soon as they find out what it wrong, which is a collapsed lung. They put a chest tube in and have him sedated by the time I get the boys with my mom and dad drives me up there. Dad later went home & my parents were gracious by keeping the boys all afternoon & overnight so that I could stay the night at the hospital. Luckily it is healing really well and they were able to take the chest tube out at lunch today and send him home. He was so ready to be home. He now has a 50% chance of it collapsing again. We hope & pray that it doesn't. He goes back next week for a follow up and can't do any physical activity for at least 2 wks. Kylan is disappointed since we had to cancel our skiing trip this weekend, however, there is always next year. It is not like I could ski anyway & now with John not being able to, it was pointless for us to go, with the exception of the boys of course. Please continue to keep us in your prayers! God has blessed us so much still even in the circumstances!
