My mom just called and told me that my grandma has to have open heart surgery; either a triple or quad bypass. She was having chest pains over the weekend and went to the hospital yesterday. They did a catheterization today and the blockages are too severe to be cleared with a stent. My first thought was if she could handle the surgery b/c she's in her late 80's and just very small and frail looking. She is still recovering from breaking her neck in October, so I'm worried. The surgery won't be until Friday or Monday, so any spare thoughts and prayers you could throw her way would be appreciated!
