surgery went fine, only lasted a little over 2 hours

they did 2 bypasses but it was the same artery in 2 places

I came home when they said he was in recovery room but obviously mom is staying at hospital till he comes home, prolly friday

a while ago mom called and said they had taken out the breathing tube and was breathing on his own, had been drinking water and eating ice chips and kinda sitting up

was aware mom and my aunt was there and asked if I had been there

and yeah Jenn, its amazing what they can do now. Pretty amazing to think now surgeons can operate on the heart while its still beating and fix whatever problems there are.
