Life is always very unexpected.... that I've learned the hard way. My mother had breast cancer with excellent prognoses - however, 18 months later, she went to the ER and learned she had another kind of cancer and it was in every part of her body. She died the day after her 50th birthday - 16 years ago.

My sister was merely 32 years old (in 2005) and had an unexpected asthma attack and her heart stopped – she was dead before she got to the hospital.

Now, I’m taking care of my 87 year old grandmother, who has outlived the both of them combined, in my home. She has congestive heart failure, which is what it sounds like with your grandfather. Your grandfather is only dealing with his 1st hospitalization with this right? My grandmother has had 7 hospitalizations in the past 12 months and there have been many days I thought she was going to pass but bounced back. What I am saying is that he can live a long time with CHF. It is important for him to check his oxygen levels, pulse rate and weight, daily. He also needs to ensure he takes those fluid pills per doctor’s order – but hon, he can live a while with CHF. In fact, the average is 1.4 - 5 years - my grandmother has superseded that beyond all expectation. My grandmother had a heart attack in 1985 that killed 1/2 her heart and her LVEF is below 35% now but she keeps going!!!

Nobody knows what tomorrow brings - even with a CHF diagnoses.

Personally, I think to live to be 87 years old is a miracle in itself. Of course I'm sure my grandmother and your grandfather would disagree....
