The ventilator tube is out! He's awake, though groggy, and breathing on his own.

excellent news!

And now he will be developing a nifty new scar.
Scars are cool.

Continued warm wishes for healing and for zero complications.

Pillow for now. We aren't allowed to bring flowers or stuffed animals into the ICU. When he moves to a room, we can.

Oooo, yeah, germs and stuff! I forgot. A teddy bear is more fun than a pillow. Like he really needs a souvenir of all of this, huh? 8-D

I've seen a lot of guys in various stages of recovery from bypass surgery recently. Sounds like he is doing really well!

I'm grinning from ear to ear and trying real hard not to use too!! many!! exclamation points!!! :-)

My elderly father-in-law had bypass surgery last July Now, due to his inherent cussedness and worsening dementia, he has not been cooperating and therefore is not healing so well... But!

But that's what has given me the opportunity to watch a whole parade of roommates recovering! They start out exhausted by a slow walk to the bathroom. They end up better than they have in years. It's amazing what well-oxygenated blood and a new zest for life will do for you.

The sternum takes a while to heal, and that's painful. The whole situation is scary. But if he follows the doctors' orders -- and the nurses', and the physical therapists', and the dietician's -- you will have a fine and frisky Ferret back home very soon.

Yay for his continued recovery! Yay!!!
