Mom's Status

My mother is dying. She had an angiogram last week. They found nothing they can fix so her heart cannot improve from 15% efficiency. Even with medications and restricting salt and fluids, etc., it will not improve more than about 5% (at best).

I had to inform my siblings of the findings which wasn't easy. Brother and one sister handled it well. My other sister broke down and said she's not ready.

I'm okay. I won't fall apart until everything is done and over (could be many months).

Thank you.
I'm so sorry. I wish I knew what to say. Please send me a private message if you need to talk. My thoughts are with you, your mom and your entire family.
Thank you, Rusty. I'm fine. Mom's feeling a lot better since they changed her meds and she is coming to terms with this being a chronic disease that affects what she is able to do. I was most concerned at the time because it appeared she had decided to give up. She has been throught three bouts of cancer and never seemed disheartened like this. I'm happy to say she's coming out of the depression caused by the news.
