Worse than they thought

My dad just called. They transferred my grandmother to another hospital. They weren't sure if she'd make it through the transfer. They found a tear in her aortic valve, and there's lots of bleeding. Doctors said this is the same thing that killed John Ritter. It has a 1 in 10 mortality rate, but it's even worse for her because she's older. Complicating things is the fact that she avoided doctors since my grandfather passed away, and she's had high blood pressure and diabetes for years and didn't know it. She'll be in surgery for the next 2 to 6 hours.
