Just got home from the hosptial which I've been at since 9 this morning. Pretty tired.
We got there at 9.30, waited until about 12.30 then Dad was taken off for op. He was pretty nervous. But the great new is that after two weeks on opti-fast he lost 9 kilos and blood pressure reading was best it has been in years!!!
We waited in his room for hours until we started to get concerned. Nurse told us Dad had problems in surgery with his breathing due to his sleep apnea. His blood saturation levels were very very low. Meant to be over 95...mum looked at obs sheet at it was apparently 47!!!!
Hope everyone is well.
I'm off to bed so I can get up early and go back to hopefully pick Dad up!

-skinny tired biddy :0)

It must have been so stressful for you waiting all that time for your dad to come out of surgery! Hope his recovery is a lot smoother!

9kgs on the Opti - wow - that is fantastic. I hope his recovery is smoother than the surgery, and that you are trying to keep calm.
