I debated whether or not to post this, but I don't want to be one of "those people" who posts everything to Facebook to be an AW so I'm going to post this here to get it out of my system.

My dad is in ICU awaiting open heart surgery tomorrow morning.  It will most likely be a triple bypass, but that could change once they get in the OR and see exactly what is going on.  He has been in ICU all week after going to the hospital on Monday for a heart cath and stents.  They couldn't do the stents and they put in a balloon pump to help his heart rest and get more oxygen flowing.  

He is in good spirits but we are all tired and worn down.  I'm worried he won't survive the surgery, he is 78 years old and has had a stroke about 10 years ago.  I know this is a common surgery and his chances are good, but I'm still worried.

Please pray (or whatever you believe in) for my Dad, the surgeon and the medical team who will be working on him tomorrow.

    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

  • Sending good vibes to you all! Hugs. I'm sure it will turn out well. 

    My grandpa had a quadruple bypass in his late 80s and his health was not good by then. He came through it just fine and recovered even quicker than we expected. Modern medical science is a very amazing thing! 

    Just stay positive, and try to get some rest.

  • Best wishes for you and your dad! My own father had a quadruple bypass following a heart attack 12 years ago. I was absolutely terrified at the time, but all these years later he's still going strong. The surgery has held, he's much healthier than he was, and hikes mountains with me in the summer. So happy endings do happen - stay strong!

    Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.  My dad has managed to survive many massive heart attacks and stents and his most recent (heart failure) last month.

    I know how terrifying it can be and I'm here if you need to talk <3

    Sending good thoughts your dad's way.


    And FTR, I don't think Facebooking this kind of thing is AWish at all. (Unless you also ask for prayer requests for your goldfish who has been looking sluggish every other day).

  • My thoughts are with your family.  My dad had open-heart surgery about a year and a half ago, waiting to hear how it went was one of the slowest days of my life.  All of the creepy internet hugs to you!
