Jon & Tyson flew to Medford today and Dane picked them up. Now all 4 of my brothers are there. That is great. I'm glad Dane & Justin have reinforcements. They went to the hospital and saw dad through the glass. They said he's all wired up and looked pale. Today they took out the balloon pump so dad's heart can learn to beat unassisted. They are hoping it will adjust. So far his heart is doing well. His vitals are okay for the condition he is in; not as good as they would like but okay for now. He is still on the ventilator and will probably be for another couple of days; they will wean him off slowly. We remain cautiously optimistic.
