Re: My Mom has a lot going on and i need help
You did not mention the type of valve being replaced. But she does have a lot going on and about the receovery from bypass will be hindered not only from what is making her sick, but also the diabetes. What will happen due to the diabetes, recovery could be a bit slower, but if they get the infection under control, surgery should be next. They should not operate with infection going on. That is taking a chance on infection going to the heart, which we all do not want to happen. She will get better, time is on her side. They need to get rid of the fluid in the lungs, which will go into phneumonia if not done. Just hang in there, she will be fine. Hugs for today and prayers to you and her and family.
Never give up.
