Surgery went well

Hey,

Thanks to all for your prayers for my father. Just a quick post to say he made it through the surgery and is doing well in ICU. He's got a brand new pig valve where his old calcified aortic valve used to be. They expect him to sit up on the edge of the bed tonight and possibly stand up.

Thanks again
Eric

That's good news! Remember when John Wayne got a pig valve? That was such good fodder for the SNL writers! Anyway, science has come a long way; and glad it was able to help your dad!

Wonderful news about your dad. Tell him that pigs can have multi-hour orgasims. I think I want a little bit of pig in me. Ok, most would say I already do.

Mama said...

It's female pigs that have 30 minute orgasms, if you really want to know.

Glad to hear your dad is doing well.

Be Free,
