redheadfae: (April 2010 peeking in)
He had the appt with the surgeon. He didn't get a surgery date yet.
The reason isn't appealing.
Dr. Tripathi thinks that his carotid artery is also blocked, and in that case, he can't do the double bypass surgery without fixing it first, to prevent a higher risk of stroke. So now he's looking at two surgeries back-to-back and more like 5-7 days in ICU instead of just 2-4 for the two cardiac arterial blockages. He's been told to use a cane for his "wobblyness" because if he falls, it will set him back further.

Sad and worried still.
