John came off the heart-lung bypass machine smoothly. The bulk of the work on John’s heart is done. The surgical team will take some precautions to prevent bleeding and complications. They will run tests on his heart function. The surgeon will come talk to us in 1-2 hours and John should be moved to ICU.
If you’re reading this tonight, thank you for hanging in there with John and the family today. I will probably post once more tonight when he is out of the OR. Thank you for your prayers and support.
