Dad Update


Thanks for all of your sweet comments. My father is doing really well. My sister and Mom are with him today-I've been busy trying to organize my family's life so I can spend the next few days at the hospital.

My sister tells me that he is in EXTREME pain (understandable after 11 hours on the table) but is making incredible progress. He's off the breathing machine and talking (he even made a couple of jokes).

The doctor who operated on him, Dr. Allan Stewart is a miracle worker (and he's pretty cute too-but maybe I'm biased because he saved my father's life).

He was part of the team that operated on Bill Clinton when he had heart surgery. The right doctors (as well as luck in my Dad's case-knock wood) can make all the difference in the world!

If you live in the Northeast and ever need a heart specialist-the ladies and gents at New York Presbyterian/Columbia are the ones to see.

P.S. I love parentheses. (I really do!)

My mother had lung surgery at Columbia Pres five years ago. It is an absolutely wonderful hospital, and her pulmonary surgeon was fabulous. Your father's in the best hands.

I'm so glad everything's okay! My thoughts and prayers are with you guys.

Heck, and here I was coming to tell you I'd tagged you for a meme. Sorta puts life in perspective, don't it?

i'm sorry to hear about your dad! i'm glad he is in such good hands! my mom had a massive heart attack, about 20 years ago which destroyed the whole back of her heart. the doctors predicted that she'd only live 5-7 years...she's here 20 years later...heart is doing ok! she is a regular at cleveland clinic but, they just monitor her since her bypass, 15 years ago, or so. so...my point...i hope your dad does as great as my mom did!!!
take care xoxo
