... We went to the e.r. for excessive swelling and he couldn't breathe very well. He gained 40 lbs in a month.. He has a family history of high blood pressure coupled with an alcohol problem. His heart, liver and spleen are enlarged. He is at 15% EF and on lopressor, Aldactone, lisinopril & lasix and wears a zoll life vest. Since his diagnosis we have his first cardiologist appt a month from now.. He is starting to forget whole conversations 2 mins after we talk. He sleeps most of the day and when he's awake he drinks vodka mixed drinks. He throws up constantly but he's been throwing up since I met him 5 years ago. Im not sure if that was the alcohol or his acid reflux or if iys all related. He won't let me help him and I don't even know how to help him. . and he won't get help. I'm not sure what to do it is getting very frustrating and I'm getting to the end of my rope. :(
