They were testing his heart to see where blockage(s) are, and were going to put in stints if they could today, letting him stay overnight and have it all done at once.

Unfortunately, the artery is too blocked, so they will need to do a bypass. I hope it'll go well. He's a beloved, very generous and well respected person, who despite being in his 80s, is more active than most. He's still a beekeeper and gardener.

I hate thinking of him as mortal, and hope he'll be okay. He's always seemed immortal. But they're not doing the bypass today.

I was asked to go pick him up around 7pm.

I've lost so much this year, that good news is needed.

Your grandfather reminds me of my own. He had to do bypass as well, but passed away from complications. I know how tough it can be to just sit back helpless while a loved one has to undergo these sorts of surgeries. I hope your grandfather gets through alright! Wishing him the best of luck.
