Dad's Doctor Visit

Yesterday Dad and I visited the surgeon who performed Dad's carotid artery surgery and who in a few weeks will also repair the aneurysm on Dad's aorta.
Dad had his 15 staples from last week's surgery (painlessly) taken out.
As for the next steps, Dad is to have an angiogram in about three weeks to measure the blood vessels in the area of the aneurysm to decide which method can be used to fix the aneurysm. Then there'll be another follow up visit with the doctor, who projects that the procedure to repair the aneurysm will take sometime in March.

  1. Thank goodness the staples came out painlessly, small blessings, eh?
