[Update] "It's just a nappy day" on the way to recovery

Dad is out of the Intensive Care Unit, early this morning they rolled him into room #424 of the cardiac care wing of Munroe Regional Medical Center (Ocala, FL). This is the last address he will hold at the hospital before being released early next week.

Mom sounded tired when I called. Dad has been dozing in and out most of the day and is definitely feeling like he had open heart surgery. The process included cutting the breast bone, taking veins from his legs and performing the by-pass before wiring the breast bone back together.

His "arms feel like they weigh 90 pounds" as a by product of being physically tied over his head to keep them out of the way during surgery.

Tomorrow he will be allowed to walk around the cardiac unit.
