The Treatment: Thoracentesis & Paracentesis

Significant amount of fluid drained from lung and abdomen at St Mary’s. Met Brad Johnson, he will be performing most of my moms thora and paracentesis procedures from this point forward. We are hoping the chemo slows (or stops) the buildup of the ascites as this makes her extremely uncomfortable. This is a post drain photo! She is adorable!!!  I made her get some lunch and she wanted crepes from Sophia’s.  She feels so much better, it’s instant relief!   For now we have a standing appointment on Mondays to relieve her of this pain.
