Modern medicine truly is a marvel - of course - a willing body.....allows the magic to happen.
Ron spent very little time in the ICU - overnight basically. The bypass surgery/ICU was Thursday, Friday he was moved to a 'step-down' room, Saturday all of his IVs were removed, and he came home Sunday. Today he's at home piddling around - made his own breakfast - pain meds = tylenol. It's amazing.
After his liver transplant in 2011 - the bypass surgery - has been a piece of cake. I think he's bummed about not being able to drive for 1 month. Thank goodness we have help - our daughter, Libby, is home on maternity leave until January - so she'll take him to the hospital for appointments and blood work.
During this ordeal - his liver has been perfect - no complications!
We are looking forward to Thanksgiving - all our children and their spouses - and our 6 grandchildren will be here to celebrate. Much to be thankful for!
