Is an in infection after a triple bipass bad?

My Poppy (grandpa) had a triple bipass and was doing so so amazingly well. He got out of the hospital before normal, and went to rehab.He started running a temp and went back into the hospital because they found infection. He is 80. I am debating on going down to Floridia where he is. I live in NC

    go and see him, it can be fatal. infections can lead to septicaemia... having had surgery his immunity will be weak, you really should go and see him if you want to. i don't want to be pessimistic, but at the age of 80 he's not going to bounce back.
