More Surgery for Dad

A quick post...

Dad saw the thoracic/cardiovascular surgeon today as a recheck after his triple A surgery. While there, I mentioned that Dad is also supposed to see him because he had a MRI while in the hospital for his TIA. Dr. C knew nothing about the MRI or that Dad had a TIA. Couldn't find the MRI on the computer. His assistant got a copy for him. I told Dr. C we had been told his carotid artery was 65% blocked. It is.

Long story short: Dad is having his right carotid artery cleaned out on November 11th. Usual hospital stay- 2 days. I'm praying for less than a week.

Prayer welcome and appreciated. I will write more later...

It's going to be OK.

Prayers are already being offered, for a swift and successful procedure, and for swift and painless healing for your Dad.

And for comfort and peace for you, your Mom, and your entire family.
