My wife just texted me and told me they are going ahead with the surgery. 

 

After talking to my wife this morning I think they should wait a day or two and explore other procedures at other hospitals.  We are surrounded by 4 really good ones all within a 200 mile radius(WVU hospital, Ohio State, UPMC, Cleveland Clinc)  Surely one of these has something else to offer than our local hospital.  It is a good place, but not cutting edge like the larger ones I mentioned.   Mother in law is adamant that he has the surgery here and today.

He has made it through the surgery. They took grafts from his legs and did their best. He still only had a 30% ejection rate. He is in for at least 6 days without any complications.

He isn't out of the woods yet but one huge hurdle has been over come!

Glad he made it thru. Still pulling for him from here.
What did they use the skin grafts for? Was this a valve replacement surgery?

That is the surgery they did.  According to my wife(she knows everything).

 

After reading that I am unsure what she was talking about with the 4 valves not properly functioning.  I am a little confused.  Medical stuff is however not my strong point....

Oh, now I understand.
My Dad had that done, but they used arm veins. The doc said the recovery time and later leg issues are much higher than when the arm veins are used. Told Dad they (doctors, in general) only use leg veins out of force of habit.

Anyways, that's a pretty well established surgery. Hope his recovery is speedy.

My father had that done in 1989 when he was only 59 yrs old, bypass of the main cardiac artery that feeds the heart. He was fine until he hit 78 yrs old when he had to have another open heart to repair a double aneurism in his main aortic trunk coming out of his heart, amazing what they these surgeons can do.

The  "valves not working properly" issue maybe in the veins themselves as all our veins have small one way valves in them to prevent blood from pooling in extremities and back flowing.

It could be an issue also of the valves in his heart not working properly causing "bad blood" to leak in with the good blood. That would require surgery though for replacement valves, usually pig heart valves are used. I have a friend who had to have one of hers replaced at age 38-39 due to childhood illness. She opted for a mechanical one though. If it's super quiet, you can hear it open/closing with her heart beat.
