|Roxy, sorry to hear about your dad. My grandfather is having a tough time with his heart troubles too. Started around Christmas. He started retaining a lot of fluid and becoming increasingly short of breath. He can barely walk without needing to take a break. It is incredibly sad to see, especially since he's the type that always wants to do something.
They changed his pacemaker and put a few stents in. They have him on water pills for the fluid, but he hates them because they make him have to go to the bathroom a lot. Which means, even if he is able to go somewhere, he has to get up to use the bathroom while he's there, but he has a hard time with that because walking makes him short of breath. He's such a positive guy though. Even with all of that, he still cracks jokes to make everyone else smile.
On a more positive note, spring is here! At least that's what it feels like. Warm, sunny, birds singing. Dogs are out sunbathing.
