Doc Shapiro Posted February 4 Share Posted February 4 Some few weeks ago my dad had a heart attack. It was asymptomatic, or he was too stubborn to go to the doc. Either way, he went in to the ER when he was short of breath and his hands were turning blue. Turns out he has a VSD and several blocked arteries, along with some necrotic heart tissue. He had open heart surgery today, 8 1/2 hours. They were able to close the hole, and bypassed all the blockages. He's in recovery. Still under sedation with a breathing tube. So far so good. I think we're through the worst as the surgeons gave him a 25% chance to survive the operation. If you're so inclined, please put up a prayer for his recovery. Many thanks.
