My 83 y/o father found out a few days ago that he had had a mild heart attack and had an angiogram which showed 3-4 severe blockages and had a triple bypass yesterday. We were able to see him after the surgery while he was still sedated and again this morning after they brought him out of the sedation and they had removed the breathing tube. The surgeon didn't really give us alot of hope, said that his arteries were very diseased, alot of blockages in the smaller vessels that they couldn't do anything about. I know my father is now very concerned about his condition because of something he said to my sister and I would just like to know how to deal with the fear that he will have another heart attack which could kill him. How have others dealt with the emotional ups and downs of heart disease and how can I be of the utmost help to him?
Thanks for any help.
