Hard to fathom...

...that it's been a week since my dad had his triple bypass. I was reminded just now that I have left a bit of a cliffhanger on my blog. So here's a little update. He came through the surgery fine. The folks at the hospital refer to it as their "big save," which is kind of sobering, but who can argue with outcomes. They say there was no damage to the heart muscle, and he should be better than new once he's recovered from the insult to his chest.

So far he seems to be doing well - he's been up and about to read stuff on the Interwebs, but thus far hasn't felt motivated to actually type anything. He blames the pain meds. Not a completely implausible explanation - I remember being pretty thoroughly demotivated after my wrist surgery and feeling kind of guilty about it, but fortunately he's not beating himself up over it.

Anyway, we're here for the rest of the day, and then back to Tucson. Sigh.
