Visited Dad today after surgery. Looked good. Visited again tonight, the nurse was helpful. Explained what they are doing next. We just need the bp to improve, that would be a positive sign that we need. Miracles are possible, but I don't think that we need one right now, my dad can recover on sheer will power. Plus our love and prayer. I'm gonna have a good rest, and look forward to a good day tomorrow. We love you Dad, please get well soon! x van

Hey there peops.
Visited my dad last night, wasn't sure what to expect but critical
sounds a lot worse than it looks. He is sedated as he is still on the ventilator from the first op. Nevertheless he can hear us, and tries to respond when we talk to him. The doctor will be operating again later today to make sure the first op was successful.
I will let you know how it goes. Please send positive thoughts. :)

Just been to visit my dad, the op this morning went well.
Everything he had fixed on monday is fine except for a small bit of infection which they cleaned out. It now a matter of waiting to see how he responds. His blood pressure is a bit low, the main concern at the moment.
We really had no idea how seriously ill Dad was. That small bit of infection was septicemia. But doctors don't tell you things like that.
