Saw dad just a bit ago. He actually looks well, a bit swollen like the nurses warned, still hooked up to machines, but looking well. All vitals are good and they are slowly bringing him out of anaesthesia. He should be in ICU around 6:00pm. After that he will be taken off of the ventilator and on oxygen in ICU.

Tomorrow should be a tough day as we were told. They are going to get him up, walking through the halls,get him eating. They want the new valve to be working good and pumping the blood. He will be tough through it, he has a strong will.
