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.
