Feeling a little down
My 92 year old Mother recently had a heart attack, they discovered that she has "aortic stenosis", the main aortic valvue is nearly completely blocked and 8 of her arteries are blocked. There is nothing they can do for her because of her age, just give her medication. She has always been so fiersly independent I just hate to see her like this. The strange thing is, is that she never had any indication of a heart problem until the heart attack, you would think that to have so many blockages that she would have had some symptons.
She is still in her own home, my brother and I take turns looking after her needs, she does not want anything to do with a nursing home. We are at our wits end with worry.
Just needed to vent this, thanks for listening.
