Could a third open heart surgery be safe?

Yes. Well, it is technically more difficult for a heart surgeon if the patient has had previous surgery, but it still should be safe and, of course, if the surgery is indicated, that is not a reason not to do it. In deciding about whether to operate on a patient, we compare the risk with the potential benefit.
Risky. Risks get higher every time. Potential damage to heart structures , damaging grafts, bleeding, infection are all higher with redo operation.

Lovely question! First: just be there! it's very reassuring to know you're not alone. Second: they'll be weak and will need help for a few days. Meals, assistance getting to/from the bathroom.
