Update on Gilly: Not out of the woods yet

Gilly will be under sedation at least through the weekend. Why? Well, the surgery was more delicate than they thought, and they are afraid to put any pressure on his chest–so they didn’t close it. So now, he’s pretty much in sterile, suspended storage with an open chest cavity (something else covering the wound I suppose) until they can check his healing and stitch him up. They hope to close him up by Monday the latest.

What he had done: Gilly’s Mom was too distraught to really get the details. Apparently they did wind up doing the bypass in the end, but she’s still not sure if they did the valve repair or replacement (and if a replacement, if he got a xeno or a Jarvis part).
