thank you for the well-wishes!
The surgery went wonderfully.....they found the scar tissue that was causing all the problems and they smoothed that puppy out! LOL!! It was about an 3 1/2 hour surgery and he was awake the entire time through it....can you believe that? He said he felt a couple pings around his heart but other than that, that was it. They had to go up through both legs to first locate the problem, so his legs are sore and a bit weak. He has to be on some potent blood thining medication so he has to be extremely careful over the next month. If he cuts himself, it could be really serious.
I've received so many emails asking about him and the comments on the blog here and I wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the prayers and well-wishes sent our way....we needed them. =) I promise I'll get back to each of you in the next couple of days but just wanted to post an update here. He's home and taking it easy for the next couple of days and he'll be back to his good ole' self. =)
