I've been awake hours but I feel somehow drained today.
Perhaps it's because of the letter we received yesterday.
It's a copy of the letter the heart specialist has sent to Freddie's doctor. It confirms he has severe aortic stenosis, impaired LV function, type 11 diabetes and peripheral vascular disease.
It doesn't make good reading. She said with the heart muscle being affected by aortic stenosis they go toward aortic valve surgery. He has a very high risk of not coming through the operation or coming through with some major complication.
She is happy to go with his decision of not having an operation, as he is sure in his own mind.
We knew this already but seeing it written down in black and white.......brings it closer....
