90-what?!

Right now, this very minute, Mac's oxygen saturations are at 91 on room air.

I know--Get. Out. Of. Town. :)
But it's true.

They turned off the O2 this morning and he's holding his own.

This is life-changing stuff.

Do hurry up and get well Mr. Mac.
You're very much on the minds and in the hearts of so many people. It appears that this procedure will make all the difference.
SPEEDY RECOVERY!

YAY!!!!!!!!

his lungs must be good too, to get up that high.

I spoke to my peeps about your peeps (Lu's card about Mac's surgeon), and Luna's card told me Dr Spray is the senior most guy in the field-period!!

I knew when I heard that, that McKay was in great hands!

so happy for you all, not too long before you can get on with enjoying the rest of the summer.
