Hey fellas, my dad is doing ok for now. His surgery went well Monday. He was in the op room for 3 hours, instead of the 4 they told us to expect, from 8 to 11am. Monday at 11PM he came off the respirator (sp, i'm exhausted), and the tube going into his stomach came out. ALL GOOD STUFF! They were gonna move him out of CCU into a regular room yesterday, which we didn't want b/c the level of care is so great in CCU, but they said he was well enough to be moved. However when they took him off of O2, his O2 level fell from 99 to 88, so they kept him in CCU. Can't leave unless it's 91 on his own. This morning the doc gave him 2 pints of blood to hopefully aid the level of O2 in his blood to normal on his own. This is a complication from smoking so many damn cigs. It's one day at a time guys, like 2 steps forward, one step back. My mom, and sister are sleeping there, while I'm returning late at night to take care of dogs,mail etc. and returning early in the am back to hospital. Thank You from the bottom of my heart for ALL the support and prayers you've given me and my family. PLEASE keep them coming. I'll be reserved from jumping up and down until he's home. Sincerely, Mike & Tracy

Mike,

Glad the surgery went well. Getting out of OR an hour quicker than expected is very likely a very good thing (they planned for some complications but didn't come up with any)! Hope all continues to improve.

Mike

GREAT NEWS!, Mike.

1 Thessalonians 5:18. "In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

My dad did not get a chance to fight his heart deal. Got him without notice at 59 years old. I'm thankful to God for your Dad's chance to fight. Best wishes!

I also would like to send my thoughts and prayers to you and your family. My dad went thru 2 bypass surgeries (the first one 20 years ago and the second one 15 years later). He was a tough old bird and he came thru each time thankful for the extra years he was given. I was definitely glad that we were able to keep him around! :angel:

Hang in there,
Tom.
