Dad is off the breathing tube. But they can not get his heart rate down. It is staying at 120 average
It should be 55-60. They are trying another drug tonight. Will update again tomorrow night.

Yes, prayers continue from here as well.  They will get his heart rate down, just a matter of finding the drug that works.

When you're under for that long, the body takes a while to reboot.
Tell Dad to relax and we are pulling for him.
If its OK, can you let us know his first name (easier than saying "Chris'sDad" every time..

Chris, thanks for the update on your Dad.  I'm sure they will get things figured out and his heart rate will come down.  Alan is right it does take the body a while to recover from being under, especially that long.  We will continue to keep  you and your dad in our thoughts and prayers.

Sorry i wasn't thinking. Dad's name is Tracey. I just left his side for a quick break. His heart rate is down to 63. It has held steady at that for thr last hour.

Chris, I am sorry I missed this.

 

You restoring that tractor for him was an awesome idea and I am sure he is proud of you as we are. I am glad to hear that your dad made it through surgery and it sounds like they might have the hear rate under control. You guys are in our thoughts.

Good to hear about your dad recovering. My wife has the high heart rate issue everytime she has surgery.

 

Tractor looks great, what a whirl wind restore you did on it.

We just found out less than a week ago that my Dads surgery for a Heart valve replacement has been scheduled for Tuesday. I am driving him to Boston on Monday and will be staying with him.

 

So... I decided to restore the Custom 10XL as a surprise,

 

What are the basic differences between the 10xl and the suburbans?

Mainly the front end. The XL stuff had the Custom type front axel and the Suburban, st, GT had the bigger tube type axel.

Thanks for the last update.  I just read about the rapid heartrate then as I read, I saw you had already updated that again.  Glad to hear it came down and is holding steady.

May God Bless!
