My grandpa went in for surgery this morning to check on his heart because he had a mild heart attack on Saturday. They wanted to put stints in but were not able to because one valve is completely blocked and the three others are 96% blocked. They will meet with a heart doctor this afternoon and my grandpa will have to decide if he wants to the quadruple bypass surgery or not.

Please pray that my grandpa will elect for the surgery and that everything will go good with it.

Prayers coming your way, Amanda. I don't know how old your grandfather is, but my mother had a triple bypass and her heart valve replaced 2 months before she turned 80. She just hit 84.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Amanda. Heart procedures have come a long way and there are more options and experienced doctors in the field these days. I hope he's able to use those to his advantage and continue to live a long and happy life.

Prayers and good thoughts for you all.
Have been through 2 bypass surgeries with my FIL. Keep his spirits up - there is plenty the medical field can do for him.

My grandpa has elected to have the surgery. He is having open heart quadruple bypass surgery tomorrow morning. He is doing really good right now. He has a lot of faith in his doctor and a very positive attitude!

Thank you for all the prayers!

I just got off the phone with my mom. Grandpa’s surgery went good. The doctor was pleased with it. They only had to do a triple bypass instead of a quadruple bypass. He is in recovery in ICU. He is on a ventilator, which they will remove once he wakes up. They are going to let him wake up by himself and not make him wake up. It will probably take 3 to 5 hours for him to wake up.

Thank you for all the prayers!

If you go in to see him in ICU - be prepared. There are tubes and monitors everywhere and it can be very scary. Just remember - these guys know what they are doing. I watched my mother's blood pressure drop to about 38/0 and thought I was watching her die. They were doing this on purpose and hadn't prepared me.

Oh - and I'm glad he's doing well.

So glad to hear he is doing well. Isn't it just amazing what they can do these days?? You and your family are in my thoughts. He still has a long road ahead of him.

Grandpa's heart is doing good, but his lungs is giving him fits. They had taken him off the ventilator before 10 last night, but during the night they had to put it back in. He is able to take oxygen really well but isn't expelling it very well. So he will remain in ICU another 12 to 24 hours.

Grandpa's heart is still doing good, but his lungs are really causing him issues. He was only able to breath for 35 mins by himself this afternoon.

I saw my dad suffer with emphysema and there were times that I never thought he would be able to come off of the ventilator, but he was able to do it every time. Sometimes he had to have a portable oxygen machine, but he made it back home. Hope you are reporting by Monday that he's off the machine!
