Zola’s Surgery Went Well
Zola came through the surgery well. The operation was about 4 1/2 hours long, from 12:30 to 5 PM. He was still asleep at 10 PM but they expected him to be up shortly. He was moving around (but didn’t appear to be in pain). He should be moved from the ICU to a regular room tomorrow (Friday).
They took two veins from his chest and one small one from his leg to use for the bypasses. They also found and repaired a small hole in his heart. When he recovers, he should have lots of new energy!
Before the surgery, Zola was in good spirits, joking with the staff.
