    All of this is great news. I was happy to hear your mom was able to see him in the room. Like your dad, my dad had a heart attack during covid and we could not get to see him. It was very problematic as they thought he understood everything they were telling him.

    He is now walking 1/2 mile a day with one of us with him. Your dad will get stronger each day and just keep moving forward with him as fast as he wants to go. Very Happy to hear all this good news!!

    Happy to hear the good news and also that your Dad’s spirits are lifted. I believe a positive state of mind contributes to the speed of recovery, your Dad is lucky to have that positive support!

    It’s been taxing on us all and we are only realizing how taxing it was on him too. We as family are thankful he had the right surgeon at the right time. He was blessed to have a heart transplant specialist doing the surgery so when the issue occurred, he stepped up and make a crucial decision that ultimately saved his life. Can’t give that man enough praise for making a tough decision; and, I admire his straightforward about doing what he did.

    Just wanted to come back with an update about Dad.

    We are five months removed from his surgery and he was given the “all clear” to resume his normal lifestyle without any restrictions the week of New Years! The surgeon said Dad was truly a lucky man and wished him the best. Of course Dad being the funny man he tries to be - although I certainly have him beat at it - told the surgeon “thank you, and I hope I never have to see you again in my life!”

    Again, thank you all for prayers and well wishes you had for Dad and the family.

    I don't know how I've missed this thread but I am absolutely thrilled that your Dad is in the clear from his surgery!

    Your Dad and your family have been blessed!

    May you and your Dad and family have many, many years of good health and wonderful times.
