As Doug's operation was scheduled for tomorrow, he got the message surgeon had to do immediate transplant somewhere else so all the heart surgeries have been put off for several days. He's now on for Thursday.
All this must be very frustrating for him, but I'm sure he'll find the courage.

Doug is lucky to have had a doctor identify blockage as the greater health risk. Some doctors would not have looked any further than the initial heart attack.

I wish Doug all the best for his long recovery. It can take quite a long time to recover ones former strength after such an invasive surgery. Be patient as the human heart heals very slowly.

Dear Douglas:

                       I thought about you yesterday and prayed for you...Please, be well in no time! I'll save for you some "Doritos" (they are selling them in Argentina, after all), since I know you loved them so much.

                         Go ahead, boy!  ;)

Update on Doug.
 
Late afternoon, surgery is over and Doug is in the recovery room now. The nurse said she thinks that they did 4 of the arteries. They will probably leave the breathing tube in overnight if he doesn't wake up. It might they want him to sleep straight through until tomorrow.
Everything seems okay.

Just received another update:

Doug is resting in the ICU recovery room, the nurse said he was doing fine, although he was in a lot of pain.
Also said that they were trying to keep him calmed down.  

I will let you know when I have more news about Doug.

Doug is doing very well, something on the order of being at 98% following the surgery.  Still has a tube in his chest but that is due to come out tomorrow and should reduce some of his pain.

The word is that everything went well and Doug hopes to be home again in a few days!  ;D

I'm sure when the doctor looked inside he found a heart of gold. Way to go Doug!!!  ;)

Today I received this good and happy news: [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]

Doug is up and walking the hallways today. He probably will be released tomorrow from hospital. He's going to stay with his family for a couple of days before returning to his home. [smiley=vrolijk_26.gif]

Congrats!

Uh oh, walking the hallways, the rest of the hospital better watch out or he'll be asking them to bow to him! ;D ;D
