My bil will be in the OP..
getting an iv into his arm, hooked up on machines, put under or machine first idk , getting two major tubes down on the side of his neck, gets his chest cut open, gets his ribs broken, gets his heart pulled out and set aside, will be hooked on life support, get one heart valve replaced.. has another one looked at and maybe replaced as well.. heart back inside.. shocked. fixed up and stiched up..
if everything goes according to plan it will take about 10h..
10% risk of stroke, bleeding to death and other complications.. The docs wont know till they cut him open..
Update... Sorry for not updating sooner..
My dh sent a message on the phone: Hey everyone Michael came out of surgery about 1:15pm and is doing well. in TICI. Dr said things went well and only had to replace one valve and that the others cleaned up well and were in good condition..
