We had an enjoyable visit this evening. They are home.
Dad drew me a picture.
I found out a little more detail today. Though my dad was release and sent home, he will be seeing a doctor every two weeks for the next six weeks. They will be monitoring him as they ween him off the blood thinners. The surgery he will be having will be for one bypass, but they aren't sure how well that will work or if they can get to it, as the bypass needed is on the back side of his heart. They are also going to use a laser and cut holes in his heart (thus taking him off the blood thinners). When, I asked what the purpose of the holes was, I learned that when holes are cut into the heart, they close up and scar over, creating new blood vessels that will feed the heart.
So it is day by day, and hopefully all will go well.
I want to thank you all for your continued prayers. I value your prayers more than you can possibly know. I believe in the power of prayer, in the support of prayer and in the comfort of prayer.
So again, Thank You! :)
