Dad's Surgery

Dad's surgery started at 9am this morning. I believe it was finished at around 3pm. They only replaced the 1 valve and decided to do a triple by-pass instead of just the double. Apparently, 1 of the stints he had a couple years back had developed a 50% blockage.

Mom told me that dad had tubes coming out all over the place while recovering in ICU. Everything went very well and I'll be posting some pictures of him later tonight.

We'll keep him in our prayer and hopefully he'll be home this Saturday. I'm just amazed at what doctors are now able to accomplish.

Here is a short video Mom took of Dad's recovery room. All those machine are hooked up to him...Amazing!
