Thanks yinz, means alot to me.
It is the same procedure that Cheney had. Except my dad's operation was smoother because his heart isn't completely black and shriveled and dependant on the blood of innocent children for survival.
He was pretty beat up last weekend, standing up was a major effort and he couldn't walk more than about 15 feet, but they think he's progressed to the point where they can get him into rehab at West Penn. They're moving him today. Not sure how they're going to coax 4 or 5 hours of rehab work a day out of him but that's the plan.
Ma and Pa Od's backyard keeps dozens of migrant workers from going on to other jobs that could be filled by hardworking white folk, so they do their part.
Pisses me off because when I go home I have all this yard work to do, while my brother and his able-bodied sons live 10 minutes away and do next to nothing.
