Wow that is looking sharp and you are making short work of it.

My dad had bypasses twice and also a double anuerism repaired and lived till he was 82. I know there is fear there, but he should be fine.

This a great thing you are doing for your dad Chris.

I hope all goes well for him.

 

You sure are pulling that project off, in record time.

I hope your dad recovers, at the same rate.

You sure have a tight deadline! I am sure you are in a rush, so make sure you don't miss anything! I would hate to hear you had "extra parts" left over!

Doing a great job!

Thanks for all the comments and well wishes for my dad! I wound up not even going to bed yesterday and I just got in now(1:15AM) I hope I can sleep now!

Anyway It is coming along great, I had to help my Dad for awhile today so I was gone for a few hours, but I made up for the lost time.

I am still pushing to complete it today (Saturday). I'll post the finished pictures then. Again thanks everyone!

Chris, It touched me what you are doing for Pops before me goes in the hospital. The Sears is looking really nice and I can't get over how east your coming along with it. My Dad has had 5 Aneurisms repaired during 2 different surgery's over the last 15 years and also has had the whole Aorta Bypassed. It's scary waiting for the out come, but keep the faith my Friend. I will add You and Your Dad to the PRAYER list.

Chris please just be mindful of your own health and don't push it to the point you end up in the hospital.
