Best wishes to you and your family. I had open heart surgery last December, it was scary stuff going in, but I learned that modern medicine is pretty miraculous. Go into it with a positive attitude, understand that the doctors and nurses are looking out for your best interest and let them do their thing. I wish you the best and hope you are making saw dust soon.
