Okay, so a friend of a friend, age 45, needed an emergency triple bypass. The surgery started around midnight two nights ago, so she’s currently been in the OR for over a day and a half. (Apparently the surgeon is having difficulty getting her heart started again.)
She’s been conscious, briefly, a few times, and her family were allowed to visit her in the OR (!)… but apparently the surgeon is still hopeful that she’ll be alright.
Anyone know of situations like this where the outcome was good?
