A weak heart; one more year to live?
If there is one thing I don't know how to do, it is predicting someone's end. If you are 83 years old, you must have some reasons to get this far. I wonder whether you have a heart valve problem that could easily be fixed (a common problem in rheumatic heart disease). If the reason for congestive heart failure is because your heart is no longer pumping properly, all the more reason to make sure it is not a valve problem. Ask your doctor for details and I'll be happy to review them for you.
One thing that I advice all the time is "carpe diem", pluck the day, make the best of what you have. Among other things, I write blogs about heart healthy diets, check them out; they are delicious, inexpensive and easy to make:
Hope this helps,
