can somebody with heart disease take in more salt than recommended for just one day?

Hi, my dad has recently gotten a heart stent due to a 90% artery blockage. One of the things he was told to limit in his diet was salt. If he eats more than the doctor's recommended amount(1500 mg) in one day(thanksgiving!), will he be okay? Should he try to eat even less salt than usual the day before and after, or should he just not try it at all? Fat and calories are not really concerns because the families we're eating with are pretty healthy, but salt always seems to be the factor that people forget. Thanks!
