? for those who have had heart surgery

I've asked a few ?'s here before and always got great advice. So I'm back again. My grandmother is now 5 weeks post triple bypass surgery. (She had two in one day.) She continues to have trouble breathing, which we know is normal. However, it seems to be getting worse. She was really frightened yesterday when she had to get out of the shower because of a breathing attack. My uncle thinks her house is way too dry so he bought her humidifiers which she likes. She still does breathing treatments with that warm mist 4 times a day. She won't do the breathing machine though where you have to blow the balls up. We keep telling her she has to do it but she won't. I guess I'm curious if it's normal to have days where you are actually worse when it comes to breathing this far out. Thanks!!
