In about 15 minutes 2 of the doctors are going to do a bedside procedure to remove a major pocket of fluid in Shep's left lung. They will stick a needle through the back of his chest wall and try to pull out some fluid. Please pray for their steady hand and for Shepherd. There is a risk of puncturing his lung, infection, and some other things, but we are grateful that it is less invasive than a chest tube. Thank you for praying with us for his success. We'll let you know.
