Dad's operation

My Dad had his heart bypass surgery today. After a few hic-cups the operation has finally gone ahead. He is in the recovery ward and still on a respirator at the moment as he comes round from the anaesthetic. I will be phoning again in an hour for an update on his condition but at the moment it is looking good and we are so relieved.
Mum and I kept busy this morning and yes, we did manage another lunch today but we knew Dad was in theatre at the time and he's been on our minds all day. I'm so grateful that in this day and age the Doctors are able to do heart bypasses and that medicine has advanced so much and that Dad is likely to have a better quality of life again.
Mum and I are going up to visit him tomorrow and I know we'll feel better for having seen him.
