My Dad needs open heart surgery
My Dad is 67 years old and has many health issues. He lives in Ca and I'm in VA..so I am trying to understand what is happening because he doesn't explain it in detail. He had some procedure through wrist to see if that would help blood flow to heart. However, they couldn't help him as it's too far advanced. His veins in legs are not pumping blood to heart either, such poor circulation. Diabetes too but under control. He got an Echo and on 12/14 he is scheduled with Heart specialist. I am wondering how long before they schedule open heart surgery as I will need to go and be with him. I have to see him before they do this surgery. Im scared. I also don't know how long I can stay after his recovery. He doesn't have anyone to care for him once home. Any advice?
