I did talk with Josh and he let me know around 4:30pm today that dad is out of surgery and he is doing well. He is on a medicine and that is requiring him to be in the ICU for awhile.
There is a 70% chance that this surgery will be successful with what it needs to do for dad.
Thanks for all the prayers! I will keep the blog updated with how he is doing and will try to talk with dad tomorrow at some point.
