Dept. of Thankful

 Mac came through the operation

I haven't spoken to him yet, and will probably wait until late Tuesday to do so; nor will I expect him to want to talk a lot. But his cardiac care nurse, with whom I spoke, said he was doing well after coming out of four or five hours of operating room time. 

Thank you for all your good wishes and prayers. I am a very grateful big sister.

Doing well is good. Here's to a good night's sleep for both Mac and you.

I'm glad to hear that! I hope he recovers quickly and you can rest a little easier.

He actually called me and talked for about a minute this morning - very croaky and obviously still doped to the gills, but it made me feel a lot better!

haven't been online
It's a scary thing to have something like this happen to one of your loved ones. My thoughts are with you and with Mac.

As an aside, I had a new grandchild born on the 29th of March, and they are calling him Mac. It's a good name.

Oh yeah, and I wanted to tell you that my dad had quintuple bypass back in 2003, and this year he'll celebrate his 79th birthday. It's a tough recovery, but your brother sounds like a strong, smart guy (must take after his sister...)

Love you!

Oh, it is a good name, isn't it? Congratulations on further Grandma status, and to mother and son (and dad, of course!)

Thanks, too, for the information on your dad, who is, I think, the first person I've heard of besides Mac to have a quintuple bypass. It makes me feel better knowing that, somehow.

It's great news, and I'm about to call my stepdad to let him know as well.

Thanks for the hugs and love, and have some yourself!

I am, too! I'm hoping to talk to him a little more tomorrow; he already called me, all croaky, in pain, and doped up, but tough as nails. He'll be in the ICU until at least Sunday.

Thank you so much - and I wanted to tell you that I've spent at least a couple of nights over on your journal, enjoying the old movie fanvids you recc'd there multiple times. They just make me feel better.

So glad to hear it went well and (having scrolled down thread) that you've been able to talk, if briefly, by now. Sending good thoughts for Mac's recovery.

IJWTS that I reread that as his sarcastic care nurse says he's okay.... I love that the Canadian health system believes in caring for the whole patient, sarcasm included.

*snort*

I just saw this - growing up with a nurse, I can tell you there are scores of highly trained sarcastic care nurses here in Canada. You can probably find them down here, too, but definitely up north. Heh.
