Jaxon loves to follow Son on the curbing. So cute!
Dad Update: (previous entries, Here)
Dad went back to the Drs yesterday and left with some shocking news. They said that his heart will always be too weak for them to operate and repair/replace the valves. He will not be a good candidate for that surgery. They are recommending two alternatives to help him. One is a heart transplant. CRAP. I had to sit down when he told me that. What a shock that my dad is THAT sick. Well, not yet but he could be. Medically, he is not ready for a transplant but they want to get him on the list so that when he IS there, he's ready.
The second option, I don't know much info about and neither did Dad. They want to put a pump on his current heart, which will help to relieve some of the stress on it. Its a fairly new device but they have had success with it. One of the Drs who helped to develop it is somewhat local and Dad will be going to see him very soon.
We have lots of questions about both options and feel that we have time to get the answers to those questions, especially since Dad is doing pretty well right now.
In the meantime, we are making a list of our questions and are going to enjoy our time together!
