My stepdad

Hey everyone...

my stepdad had open heart surgery yesterday to replace two valves and an ablation to help stop atrial fib (quivering of the top of the heart). So far he's done ok. When I last saw him yesterday they had had to take him back into the OR but corrected whatever problem there was and his vitals are stable. His kidney functions aren't looking good. Short of it, he's a train wreck but at the moment not getting any worse. Prayers would be appreciated.

Re: My stepdad

I work as an ultrasound tech and am registered in heart and vascular ultrasound. Many advances in valve replacement and I'm sure your stepdad is in good hands. Positive thoughts to your stepdad and your family. Hang in there.

Praying for a speedy recovery for your stepdad, Vance, and for all of you, as well. Like Morchella said, there have been so many advancements. Medical science amazes me! God bless you all!

Re: My stepdad

Thanks everyone. He is not out of the woods, yet.

They had him stable and even up and walking some. However, over the last few days he started putting water-weight back on, etc. They had to take him back in for surgery yesterday afternoon and he came through that alright but when I last saw him he was not conscious yet and was still intubated. I managed to talk my mom into letting us steal her away for about an hour for dinner. I'm worried about her also but understand why she doesn't want to leave his side. So, please continued prayers. Thanks...

Re: My stepdad

Got a call early this morning and they had to take him back in again. They are dealing with some bleeding issues but he's out and stable again for now. He'll be sedated and such for several days while they monitor the situation.

Thanks again...
