Thanks to everyone who has called and messaged with good wishes. I took dad into the ER at about 2:30, Tuesday morning, because he called and said that he'd woken up in a lot of pain. When we got there, his blood pressure was dangerously high, and he was admitted. Once the blood work showed elevating heart enzymes, he was transferred to Kansas Heart Hospital in Wichita. I chased the transport ambulance all the way, and we've been here, since. He has 3 clogged arteries, including the one that cardiologists refer to as "the Widowmaker," and is going under for triple bypass surgery at noon, tomorrow. In the meantime, were just trying to keep him comfortable and his BP under control.

For any of you who don't know, dad has been a Guzzisti since he first bought his (now mine) '74 Police Eldo in 1976. Here he is with my mom on it in the late 70s at Sturgis



And in case any of you missed it earlier in this thread, here he is at Cedar Vale with that same Eldo, now that he's passed it on to me.

Thanks everyone. Yesterday was touch and go, but we got him through to the surgery. They took him back about an hour and a half ago, and they should be done operating in about another 3 hours.

Good news. I may gripe about the medical profession, but they can do some wonderful things. Hang in there, JC..

I'm glad it went well.  Two years ago about this time of year, I was in the hospital waiting room for one of my best friends.  He'd had a quadruple bypass.  After the surgery, he wasn't in the hospital very long.  His wife did the driving since they had to travel from Okla City to their home SW of Denver. 

It's been successful for him.  All the best here.  I hope for the same outcome.

It's amazing the things the medical profession can do now days. I delivered a tens unit to cardiac surgeon in the cath lab one time, he was reviewing a procedure he'd just finished on the computer. The detail of the heart was incredible! Then they rolled the patient right by us on a gurney. Kinda gave me the heebie jeebies  :shocked:

Again, thanks for all of the support, guys. The surgery went off without a hitch. It actually went so smoothly that the surgeon decided to go ahead and make it a quadruple, also bypassing an artery that was only 40%-50% clogged, which they normally don't worry about in a situation when there are much worse ones to do, and they're trying to get it done quickly. So dad got a 4 for 3 deal, haha. We were able to see him, before visiting hours. He was awake but miserable, as he was still intubated, but they should be able to take the tube out within the next few hours ended. They did have to strap him down, as he's one of those people who immediately, instinctively went for the tube, when he started to regain consciousness. Hard to see the tough old man in that condition, but we're through the worst of the danger, at least. Looking forward to talking to him as soon as visiting hours start in the morning.

That's good news buddy :thumb: he's liable to feel so good you'll have to loan him a bike  :laugh:
