Dad is home!!

We just got home to Fort Bragg on Friday evening and had some sushi for dinner.

Last  Wednesday, we went to St. Helena for his 1 week follow up and he's doing great. The cardiologist listened to his valve and said previously it gurgled and it sounds perfectly clear now. He's been walking around more and has much more energy than before. You can watch video of the deployment with some commentary from the Cardiologist and I. 

Just spending the weekend getting him settled back in, doing a little grocery shopping and getting oxygen lines run to various parts of the house and minimizing tripping hazards.
