Right now, as I type, my Dad is having quadruple coronary artery bypass surgery.

Basically he was a walking heart attack with four of his arteries almost 90% blocked. After an angiogram yesterday afternoon they scheduled surgery for 8:30 am this morning. Can I say - Holy Shit?!

My Dad is healthy and plays racquetball or golfs almost everyday - so the doctors tell us everything will go smoothly. His father died of a heart attack. So this is pretty scary. My gut tells me everything is going to be fine though.

His 63rd birthday is on Monday - what a crappy way to celebrate.
