Oh, it sounds very painful. Why do they wait a year to un-clog him? I hope he'll be okay and that there's something to do sooner to relieve some of that pain. Lots of vibes headed your Dad's way Brian. I'll be thinking of him and all of you.

well for one thing his overall health is a big concern when it comes to surgery... especially a major surgery like a bypass in his leg. he does have cancer and lyme's disease.

They were hoping they could unclog him with the surgery they just did but it's worse than they thought it was going to be.

He has some road to cover before he can have the bypass ... plus it's a VA hospital so wait times can be longer than other places.

MIL is in Charlotte waiting for her connecting flight. They don't know anything yet. She will update more when she lands in Asheville

Oh yes...surgery can be very touchy when one isn't in tip top shape. I'm so sorry to hear about the pneumonia. That's quite worrying. I am continuing to think about him and hope they can get that under control. (((hugs))) and lots of vibes.

he's doing better today. still tired and not 100% but better. they caught the pneumonia quite early (they figure he probably picked it up when he was at the hospital for his surgery) so he didn't end up needing IV antibiotics or anything.

so it sounds like he's on the mend my MIL made it there safe and sound too

Thanks for all the prayers guys

Thank you everyone.

he is improving. he's still quite tired and spent most of yesterday sleeping, which is the best thing for him.

They are flying back home today. I don't know what time their flight is but the weather is supposed to get nasty today so hopefully they don't have any delays or issues and can get Dave home and resting some more.
