My dad will be having open heart surgery tomorrow morning, 8am.
Short version: he went in for a stress test today, and... they're keeping him overnight and cracking his chest tomorrow. No, it cannot be fixed with a stent or a *plasty. Must be open heart.
Doctor that read the test said that without surgery they would expect him to have a massive heart attack within 7 - 10 days.
He had NO warning signs. Family history of heart disease, yes. Symptoms or problems himself? No.
So, I am asking for anyone out there in blog-world that reads this to please keep my daddy in your prayers tonight, and tomorrow during the surgery, and then during his recovery as well.
