To let you all know, my dad had to have 4 stents put in but has returned home now and is doing fine. It’s so amazing that this procedure can be done and seems to be fairly routine. I read there is a 99% success rate with stent placement and that is about as good as it can get. It’s hard to be so far away at times like this. It was good to talk with him on the phone and to hear that he sounded himself so I did not make a trip to be him.
I will be back to post about my New Zealand trip very soon.
