Update II on my father

Quick update:
We saw my father at 8:00 p.m. and spoke with the doc's assistant. They said he "is doing o.k. We are still going to let him sleep and let the heart continue to rest and heal." Between two open heart surgeries in 48 hours, the heart definitely needs to heal.
He was resting soundly with a blood pressure of 110/60. The kidneys are outputting as of now. The goal is for him to have a peaceful, restful night; and then look to take him off the ventilator sometime tomorrow. He has been on life support/ventilator for 41 hours straight now. They must get him off soon to prevent pnemonia.
His "shading" is somewhat better as they have air pressured wraps on his legs. They did not have to have dialysis today which was a great blessing. Please pray with us tonight that he continues to rest and heal and that his vitals continue to better.
We love you all and praise the Lord for His blessings!
