my hubby had emergency triple bypass this week.

Surgery went fine but post surgery his heart rate is 103-110 even with Metopropolol.  Surgeon is also concerned that his lips are a little blue w oxygen at 1 and showing 93% saturation.  I'm feeling concerned.  Ideas?  Questions I should ask?  He's at a nationally known hospital btw.  All tests prior to surgery were normal, w mild athrosclerosis in two vessels.  Cardiologist ordered cardiac cath because he had chest pain, shortness of breath on stairs, and extreme unrelenting fatigue.  Cath showed 70% blockage in LAD and two others.  Thankful that cardiologist listened and ordered the cath
