  • Prayer for Sparko's heart surgery.

    On Facebook I just learned that Sparko is undergoing a heart surgery. I don't know much about the details, but I'm going to pray for him and I invite others to do the same.

      They did the cathererization earlier today, and they've sent him to a different hospital to have, probably, bypass surgery. He said it would be today or tomorrow.

      I've not heard anything new for several hours.

      My husband had bypass surgery 6 years ago and it took 6 hours. He had a quadruple bypass, so if Sparky only has one or two blockages it should take less time.

        Yeah he didn't say just how much they would bypass. I imagine they won't know until they go in.

          Probably. We expected a triple for Mr. mossy and they found the fourth when they went in.

                  He has a blockage in at least one of the blood vessels of his heart. They discovered it today during a heart catheterization, and sent him to have, probably, bypass surgery.

                  It's a fairly extensive surgery depending on how many blockages there are. I believe he had a blockage before and they were able to place a stent instead of doing the open-chest surgery, and he had hoped for the same remedy today.

                              Thanks guys. Yeah the surgery is planned for Monday at 7:30 eastern daylight time

                              They said at least 2 blockages but won’t know till they go in and look

                              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
