Last Saturday, my dad was life flighted to Murray, UT Intermountain Medical Center. He has a bacterial infection in his heart, on the 2 heart valves.

They had him in the ICU for this entire week, treating him with loads of antibiotics, to try to clear the infection. The doctors were able to shrink the infection, but not fast enough.

They took him in for emergency bypass surgery thus morning at 8am. They are replacing the 2 valves, and clearing some blockage out of his carotid arteries in his neck as well. At this point, they are close to half way through the surgery. Another 4-5 hours and they will be finished with out to much complications.

Needless to say, this build is officially on hold until further notice. Between my dads health issues, and myself getting shoulder surgery this past Thursday. Hopefully by the of April, everything will be back to some normalcy, and I can continue finishing this build, before July rolls around.

Thank you everyone, for all of you're support, and continued support. It means the world to me, ave I greatly appreciate everything. For those that can and will, please keep my dad, Robert W. George, in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you all so much.

I hope your dad is going to be okay!
Best of luck - Suki

Thank you everyone, I really appreciate everything. He was definitely much sicker than even the doctors had anticipated.

The surgery was also much more in depth than the original plan had been. On top of replacing his 2 valves, and clearing his carotid arteries, they ended up doing a triple bypass.

Even for a relatively healthy person, that kind of surgery is hard on them. With the condition my dad was in it took a lot out of him. Right now they have him on a CPS machine, ventilator, and an external pace maker. The CPS machine is more or less a smaller version of life support. His heart wasn't strong enough after surgery to sustain blood pressure, even with the balloon pump that they had installed. After they realized the balloon pump was sufficient, they rushed back in and put him on the CPS. They are keeping him sedated for 4-5, to help him and his heart rest, and hopefully get his heart strong enough to pump on it's own again.

The doctor did say, that if he hadn't gotten the surgery, he wouldn't have survived more than 2 weeks - month.

They were able to wake him up for a short time last night, and he was responding with hand squeezing with his nurse. His neurological response was one more concern they had, since he was in surgery for ~14 hours yesterday. Almost twice as long as they had planned. We won't really know much more until the end of the week, but my family and I are all being positive, and optimistic.

Take care yourselves everyone. I wouldn't want to see anyone else go through what my dad has in the last week, or what my family has gone through watching it happen.
