So, he finally had the operation and hopefully will be able to breathe, and get rid of the sleep apnea problem. I'm happy! He's in a bit of pain right now, but we see the doc again tomorrow and the packing comes out, so it might feel a little better.
On a related note, during the pre-admission testing it was discovered that he has a problem with his heart. He goes for a nuclear stress test in three weeks, then a follow-up with the cardiologist. I am so thankful that he decided to have this surgery so they found and can fix his heart/sporadic HBP now. Would have sucked if he hadn't known about it and something bad had happened.
