I received this from John about his father JB:
My father came through open heart surgery. The surgeon just came out and told my sister and I that the procedure went well, and that my father should be off of the ventilator by tomorrow morning. He is being moved to ICU right now, so I have not had a chance to see him yet, but i am looking forward to it.
I wanted to thank you again for all the prayers for both me and my family. It has been, and will continue for some while to be a difficult time for all of us. For me especially, I really appreciate the compassion that each of you has shown. us. For me especially, I really appreciate the compassion that each of you has shown.
