He survived the surgery!!! The surgery was more complicated than planned, he had lots of calcification inside his aorta and they had to clean that out first, then attach a replacement valve, and they also had to replace one of his prior bypasses. This meant he had to have a vein removed in his right leg. This is one thing no one wanted to have happen, because since he's diabetic and already lost part of his left leg last year to this disease, his right leg's circulation isn't that great to begin with and now with a big vein gone it's going to be even worse.
But so far so good. I love my Daddy. He's so awesome.
