Update on my dad

Well my dad made it through the surgery ok. They went in and found two blockages on the left side of his heart and therefor put in some stints to help open the blood flow. There was also some blockage on the right side of his heart but they can't do both sides at once. So, they are going to have him come back in for out patient surgery on Friday and get the right side fixed with a stint as well.

They said everything went well but they did say that he had arrested once on the table while in surgery. The Dr. sort of down played it and said that is common when you start messing with the heart but the thought of my dad having to have those paddles on his chest just breaks my heart! It also concerns me that this happened and now he has to have it done again on Friday.

Please pray that God will watch over him and keep him safe on Friday. It may be routine to the Dr. but I typically like my dad with a heartbeat!
