Big Relief!

(Parma, OH) - Here's some major good news: my Dad's surgery was a success, and he's recovering nicely.

He had the least invasive treatment possible for repair of three Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms, at Parma Community Hospital. The alternative was a complete opening of the abdomen, and that scared the hell out of all of the Koles. So, being able to receive the EVAR treatment was a big relief, and the successful outcome an even greater relief.

I'll take Isabel to see Grandpa in a short while, now that most of the grogginess is gone, and he's up to seeing more wiggly visitors. No 'hop on Grandpop', or airplane rides for a while, though.

Glad to see everything has taken a turn for the better! I know how draining these things can be. Tell your dad we're pulling for him!

Thanks, everyone for the well-wishing! He's been transferred to a general recovery room, so things are moving right along. He'll probably be discharged tomorrow!

We knew he was feeling right when he started asking me about my work and current projects. Right back in the saddle!
