Last summer, my Dad (age 84) had a triple bypass. Recovery is SLOW. Dad seems to have gained a little more physical strength and endurance than he had before, but his mind is not recovering as quickly as I expected. Short term memory is just not there as it used to be. Does anyone know about this?
Dad drives his car, does the things he used to do a year ago (in moderation as he used to), and generally lives a life of an 80+ person. The doc's said 'Whatever gets you in the end, it will not be your heart'.
He may live to be a centurion (age 100).
Point is; we can survive heart issues.
