Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, is recovering in the hospital after a successful heart surgery. The 73-year-old father of Prince Harry's future bride told TMZ that the surgery was needed due to significant damage he suffered after a heart attack last week.
The celebrity site reported that Thomas Markle was alert and coherent as he explained that surgeons implanted three stents in his blood vessels during the early morning surgery. Ahead of the operation, Thomas said the doctors were planning to "go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed."
Now that the surgery has been successfully completed, Thomas Markle has revealed that he is feeling OK and trying to stay calm. A post-op Thomas Markle told TMZ,
"I'm ok. It will take a long time to heal. Staying in the hospital a few more days. Not allowed to get excited."
