The wake up call to get healthy

When I met Bobby over a year and a half ago, he told me of his concerns when it came to being in a relationship with someone as far as his health. His family has had health problems and one that seems to hit all the men is health issues. His father has had 2 and a year before Bobby I met he had one. From the stories that I have been told about the incident he is very lucky to be alive and infact the doctors told him that most people who went through what he did usually didn't make it through.  Since then however, as far as I know other than changing up meds and that type of thing all has been fine. He just recently went to the doctor who ordered a stress test because he didn't think something was quite right. Afterwards, the tech told him everything looked ok and he would be getting the official results in a few days. Well, today the doctors office called and he has to undergo another surgery. One of the two stents that was placed in his heart before has moved or is not properly working. 

I know this shouldn't surprise me, knowing the history, but I suppose I was hoping that nothing would happen or at least not for a very long time. I guess its better to find an issue and correct it than finding out later by something bad happening. Although I know this, it doesn't make me worry any less. I pray that the surgery will go well without any problems and he will really get serious about getting healthy.
