Dad’s new heart valve is working great. Dr. Bibler just stopped by to talk with us and let us know that Dad is doing great. No bleeding or problems. He’s off the bypass machine and his heart is running his body. He is not on any heart medication, it is all his body and heart doing the work. Which is great.

Dr. Bibler said we should be able to see him in about an hour. He will look pale and a little puffy but all in all, good shape. After we see Dad, he will be in ICU and being monitored. Since the surgery has taken a little longer than planned, they should have him up to eat his first food during breakfast tomorrow. And also tomorrow they will have him walking around.

Stay tuned in for more. -Lauren, Adam & Tracie
