Dad post-op Day 2 4:30

After concerns about his kidney functioning and fluid, the decision was made to move Dad to the icu for close monitoring.  The thoracic surgeon on call this weekend has been excellent and was able to get things moving very quickly.  

He has a chest drain in now and a tube to remove the gas from his stomach.  Both of these procedures have greatly improved his breathing and level of pain.  He's not allowed to eat anything while the ng tube is in, but he has been enjoying the wet sponges in his mouth. :)

Our pastor and his wife visited and dad really enjoyed seeing them.  Dad has a long road ahead, and we appreciate all of your prayers.
