Grandpa (Lin) suffered from a coronary artery dissection, and things happened so fast... Last week, over two 10+ hours surgeries, doctors amputated his right foot, removed 120 cm of his small intestines, repaired a coronary artery, rewired other arteries and stuck him full of tubes connected to plenty of machines. Doctors said he had a 1% chance of survival, but he's doing better and better now. He still looks like operator central with all the tubes and lines, and he's in stable, but critical condition.
When I visited him at the ICU today, he was conscious and knew it was me. He could hold my hand and squeeze and nod his head when I talked to him, and it felt like he was trying to comfort me more than I was trying to comfort him. It was heart wrenching, but at least he is getting better.
