pneumothorax

when you've just got to take that photograph before getting on the water taxi to go to the hospital, even though your chest feels like it's exploding, although you subsequently find out, it was actually doing the opposite! And I just thought it was the view! lol ... "If me doing this, taking this picture … Continue reading pneumothorax
