According to...

nurses, a chest tube is one of the most painful medical treatments possible. Our dear Steve was hospitalized last week and has been keeping us away from computers, blogs, Travis' books. But, our fatigue can't compare to the "excitement" and exhaustion he went through recovering from the complications of his pneumonia. The picture from ADAM gives you an idea of the lovely invasion he underwent. He had two 12 inch tubes inserted into his pleural cavity to help him heal after surgery. More info than you probably wanted but now you'll know why pneumonia is so dreadful.
