Surgery update 2
Brian went over at the hospital this morning around 5:30 am. He and mom saw Dad before he went into surgery. Kara and I headed to the hospital around 11 am with our kidos and joined Mom and Brian in the waiting area and waited for Dad to come out of surgery. Aaron had a slow day at work so was able to leave his job early and come to the hospital. Jen arrived also after riding the train over from N.J. We had a whole crowd in the waiting room. Dad got out of surgery around 2 pm and was taken to the NICU area where he will stay overnight. He was alert fairly soon after surgery and doing well. We all got to see Dad and talk with him except for Bethany. She had class today so she will head over to the hospital later tonight so she can see him. Mom will come home tonight since she isn't able to spend the night with Dad in the NICU and then will go back to the hospital tomorrow when Dad will have his own room again.
