Update

Dad seemed to come through the surgery just fine. Doctor said he did great...

I went ahead and left the hospital and then got a call from my mom. Said he looked horrible. I reminded her that anyone coming out of anesthesia looks horrible. She said she thought he looked worse than any of the other times.

Then the nurse asked her "does he have oxygen at home in case he needs it". Mom freaked. Bad.

She went to go get his scrips filled and I told her to go and ask the nurse why she asked that question. As soon as she gets back to the hospital, she will.

I called my brother, the doc and he said that they won't release him if there is any doubt about him being stable or if he isn't getting proper oxygen.

Shit.

I so should not have left the hospital. If I went back now, with Houston traffic, it would take me 2+ hours to get there.

Spare prayers? Keep sayin' em please.

Love you daddy!

Thoughts and prayers. Don't worry about the oxygen -my mom was released recently with oxygen. It is a precautionary thing, I'm sure.

Chat soon. XOXO

How is your Dad today (Saturday)?
Mom needed oxygen after her surgery several years back. After the anesthesia completely cleared her system, everything was back to normal.
Hugs and prayers!
