Things had continued to be very frustrating where Roy's situation and care are concerned but FINALLY when he almost had another heart attack and the dr. was able to examine him did they begin to take things seriously. The surgeon says that Roy is in too bad of shape to handle a quadruple bypass though ideally that is what would be needed. He will do a double bypass and if possible, a third one.
They tried to put in a balloon (or whatever you call what that procedure is) to relieve pressure but were unable to.
Originally, the surgeon thought the surgery would take place tomorrow afternoon but because things are so very serious, it will now start at 7:30 tonight.
PLEASE continue to pray.
Thanks so much,
