As of yesterday, he is "doing alright" for a man who is allergic to anesthesia, and body can't handle pain medication. Vito is still very groggy, but he is lucid. They tried to get him to sit up, but the pain was too great. Again, they have to monitor how much pain meds he gets, so the Dr's walk a thin line of TOO much or not ENOUGH.
And yes, he will need to quit smoking. It caused another component of the poor circulation.
The good news is that his actual heart is 'perfect'.
