Out of surgery -- so far, so good

Looks like my dad is doing OK. I talked to him a bit on the phone and he was a little difficult to understand, but he's also still dealing with the after effects of anesthesia, so that's not too surprising. He's a little freaked-out by those things they often use on a patient's legs after major surgery--the things that swell up and deflate rhythmically. I recall having those either after my c-section or boob reduction...I forget which.

Other than that he sounds good and I can tell my mom is feeling very relieved. She joked that earlier in the day when asked how old he is my dad's response was "42." A full 20 years younger than his actual age. Though if he were to be 42 again, can I be 14? I have lots of things that I would do over, given the chance (mostly choosing a different career/college path).

Now the HARD part starts. Getting my dad to make major, permanent changes in his health.
