Zack's day started with a blood transfusion around 4am...he slept through it. He had an x-ray around 9am. His bronchioscopy, which started around 5:30pm instead of 8am, went very well. The doctors took a sample from his lungs...we will have results tomorrow. Despite warnings that he could end up in the ICU after the procedure (due to irritation of his already taxed lungs), he's currently (and happily) watching Monty Python in his room. He is still hooked up to oxygen but his breathing is not labored. He's feeling mellow from the sedation but he doesn't have a fever and is in a very good mood. Zack says he feels better than he did yesterday and I think he looks better, too.
