At exactly 7:00am yesterday, dad was sent to the operating room for his heart bypass operation. We were all a bit nervous about the procedure but we had to trust dad's surgeon and his team. I'm sure God is with him, with us, in this difficult situation.

We waited patiently for almost 6 hours. Finally dad's surgeon had approached us and said, it was a successful operation. Praise God!!! He didn't have any other complications at all. He needed to be at the surgery intensive care unit (SICU) for the recovery period, for the time being. Perhaps for about 3 days or more depending on dad's condition.

He was unconscious for hours until we were told by his nurse that dad is now responsive. She let us peek through a small window for an hour. Indeed he is very much conscious and he could even wave his hand slightly. We could see his sweet smile through. Dad is very fortunate, rather we are fortunate for God's love. We are also forever thankful for the people who helped us pray and sent their donations to make this surgery possible. A big thanks to you all!

PS. We are still asking for your prayers for dad's complete recovery. And any donations sent til this campaign is ended is very much appreciated. Sending you our love and our grateful hearts! God bless you all!

Just last night, Dad had a emergency heart attack. He was in so much pain that he could breathe helplessly. He could not bear the pain that he needed another morphine injection. SAD. His operation might be delayed again due to these frequent symptomatic heart attacks. We're still hoping though that his surgery would push through tomorrow, Tuesday. Let's continue to pray for my dad's complete healing. Again, we thank you for your donations and prayers.

My dad's doctors have started doing the preparation for his open heart surgery. They were trying to unload some medicines, not much morphine injections if possible for the the preparation of revascularization procedure. Unfortunately for the last 48 hours, he had few symptomatic heart attacks which can also delay the whole procedure. His surgeon was hoping dad wouldn't experience any chest pain anymore, that he would be more relaxed before the operation.

His heart bypass operation is for reschedule and most likely be done next Monday, 15th May 2017. Means a lot to the whole family if you can please include our dad in your prayers. Again, thank you for your constant support, prayers and love.
