Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
So David has finally had the surgery and after 8 1/2 of the longest hours in my life has made it back to CICU :-) Thats the good news, the bad news is we still have to wait until they wake him up to see if he is ok. They are not sure when they will attempt this it may be tomorrow or it may not.
One of the surgeons came and spoke to us and said " this as big as it gets in terms of surgery" tbh i wish he hadn't said that. To us he looks like death barely warmed up, to them he is doing as well as can be expected.
I pray he will make it. He is the other half of me, we have been through so much together it can't end here. He had a massive uphill climb from a stroke 2 years ago that he only had a 50% chance of surviving its just not fair that he now has this.
My kids although now young adults are really struggling, my daughter is supposed to be doing A'2's but just can't face college and my son took it hard when he saw his Dad tonight. I have to stay strong for them too.
