Dad W.'s Surgery

Mark's Dad came through his open-heart surgery beautifully. He underwent a quintuple bypass, which was completed in about 3-1/2 hours. I considered that amazingly fast, but that is apparently a typical amount of time for bypass surgery. By the time Mark and I left the hospital today, he breathing tube had been removed, and he was able to talk, albeit hoarsely. We are all extremely relieved.

Many thanks to those of you who offered prayers and well wishes. We and Dad are very, very grateful for them.

Tomorrow, NATS and gaming.

Good to hear the operation went fine and quick. I hope he also gets a fast recovery!

Rocio--So do we! Right now, we are so relieved that he survived the surgery. All of us were dreading the same outcome we had with Mark's mother, who never woke up from a hip replacement that she had. Mark's sister would not leave the hospital until Dad woke up and spoke to her--and the rest of us felt the same way.

I'm glad he's doing well.

I didn't want to say this earlier, but my orthodontist died in the midst of his open-heart surgery--because it turned out he was allergic to the latex gloves the surgeons were wearing. Which is why you should always figure these things out before having surgery.
