Well...we made it! It has been a long day but around 3:00 this afternoon my dad came out of surgery with no complications. All is well and he is recovering in the ICU right now. We got to see him briefly but he was in and out of sleep as he was still on pain medication so we will go back later this evening to see him hopefully awake.
As you can imagine, we are all relieved...especially my mom! We had to calm her down so that she didn't jump on him with happiness while in the ICU!
Thank you again for all the support, prayers, and encouragement! He has about a week of recovery in the hospital and then he will be able to come home.
