I’m not sure how today turned into liveblogging my dad’s surgery, but it has.
Anyway, I just talked to my mom and they closed him up early because they found more substantial blockage than they expected to find and so he’ll have to have bypass surgery.
He didn’t have a heart attack or anything and the artery with the worst blockage has the blockage in a place where the blood was able to flow in from the other direction and so his heart is completely healthy and undamaged.
And the doctors are very optimistic about doing bypass surgery on a person with a healthy heart.
So, it’s like the best possible bad news, really.
And I am very, very relieved. We can make a plan, we can execute it, and that will be that. I will know far enough out that I can get up there for the bypass surgery.
Okay, so let’s get back to talking about indelicate body parts and farts and whether or not I am a giant crybaby.
Two crows for joy, indeed.
