    My surgeon is apparently one of the premier heart surgeons in the country, and has written books. He normally does heart transplants but is doing my bypass because the regular doctor is out of town
    Assuming AM not PM

    I'm always still in trouble again

              He's in surgery now. His brothers are keeping us in the loop, so one of us will post here as we get info.

                Sorry to hear that, hope all goes well Sparko. When I was a kid my uncle had quadruple bypass surgery, he went on to live an another very active 45 years or so. Certainly hope the same for you.

                  My husband had quadruple 6 years ago and is doing quite well.

                    Update from his brother:

                    He is off the bypass machine and they had to do two grafts. He is doing well.

                      And another update that he is out of surgery and in ICU.

                      Might be able to come home on Friday, which seems to be the standard 5 days for getting bypass patients out of the hospital.

                        I wonder if his mean old doctor will tell him to abstain from bacon.

                        He's in a Jewish hospital, yes?

                            Does a Hasidic Jewish hospital have to wear a hat and, if so, where do they get one big enough?

                              Update a bit ago from one of his brothers.

                              Sparky is awake but still on the ventilator. He is very unhappy about that and also says the drain tube in his left side hurts really bad. He is communicating by writing notes. They are having some difficulties removing the ventilator because of his oxygen levels. They hope to have it out later today. He made me leave and promise not to come back until the morning.
