Surgery Update

So, Dad was taken down to surgery about 2:30 and the procedure started at 4:07pm. He was on bypass at 6. We got a call from the nurse about 7:15pm saying that they had removed the old pump, put the new one in and were checking out the LVAD. They figured he'd be back up to the room in a couple of hours and we'd be able to talk to the doctor within an hour. At 8:05pm we got another call saying that they tried to take him off bypass and had to put him back on so they could "fix some things". They didn't say what things or anything, but said that the doctor wouldn't be able to talk for at least another hour.
