Dr. Highbloom concluded surgery and just met with us. He told us the surgery went very, very well and Dad is doing fine.
He had 3 bypasses put in, the 3 most important ones. He’s in the process of being moved to ICU, which will take about an hour or so before we can see him.
They did not have to take veins from his legs or arms, rather they took them from the chest / mammory arteries, which is good too, since they didn’t have to cut open his legs or arms.
His heart is beating on it’s own and was never stopped. He’s not on any medications or blood products (yet). The intibation went well, no problems. He’ll be on the breathing tube until they determine he is strong enough to breath on his own.
He’ll have all sorts of tubes and wires coming out his neck, mouth, chest, etc.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.
