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....

OH June, I am sorry to hear this. I will keep you both in my prayers. I have type 11 diabetes as well but I manage to keep it under control with diet and Metformin. I don't exercise as much as I should but we all must make our own choices. Try to make the choice for yourselves. Big Hug, Chris

I am sorry that you got such news about Freddie's condition, June. You know, God puts you on my heart sometimes and I lift your names up to Him in prayer at that time. This digital collage is simply beautiful.

I don't know why, but when I read this post, the thought "death is but a state in time" popped into my mind. Perhaps it is because I believe God's love for us and in his power to resurrect us if that is what our lives lead to.

Oh dear, not good. A lot of this depends on diet accept the aortic stenosis, which is a narrowing.. I would say he is on blood thinners as this assists with the blood flow.
Dr Sandra Cabot has a book called Reversing Type Two Diabetis. It is great and easy to follow and can be puchased off line. Again its the food. Cutting out carbs which turn to sugar and replacing with protein, which helps muscle, heart included. Diabetis assists in heart problems. Three main ingredients we should all need. Fresh air (O2) water and magnesium..
Do a web research and look at the values of the amazing mineral. In the old days a spoon full (espom salts) was added to water and drank..
My heart problems are with the electrical system and I still take this and it does help. Your Freddies is much to do with diet.
