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.
