Update on Dad!

Wow, it has been a whirlwind since I blogged Thursday morn from the OR waiting room. My dad was only in surgery for four hours and they successfully completed 5 bypasses. Amazing!

He had some panicky moments coming off the vent, but he did get off of that too...the same afternoon as surgery. Also amazing!

He had an unfortunate event with his catheter Friday afternoon and that has really been the most of his worries. I will spare you the details, but I witnessed it and it was not pretty.

After all that was resolved, he was up on the floor by Saturday afternoon. Saturday night was a rough night...he had some arrhythmia and ended back up on some IV medicine and was unable to sleep. When I saw him yesterday the IV port was still in his neck and he still had 2 chest tubes, but other than that, he was TUBE FREE! Pretty amazing...considering all the lines he had running before.

We are so thankful for the talents with which the Lord blesses physicians and nurses. I am guessing maybe he'll go home Tuesday. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.

I am so glad to hear your dad is doing better. I just went through the same ordeal with my dad at the end of January. Miss you and would like to see you soon. Praying for continuous healing for your dad.
