In my understanding of CHF it is a situation where the valves do not close properly. The heart contracts and pushes blood through the valve like it is supposed to but then when the heart expands to pull new blood in for the next pump, the valve does not close and some of the old blood slips backward through the valve and reduces the efficiency of the pump. I thought this condition could be repaired by replacing the valves and with drugs that slow the speed of the contractions.
Well, at any rate there are some pretty miraculous things being done in medicine today. Hang in there and see what they come up with. My wife’s best friend was told she had 3 months to live; 8 years ago. We went out to eat dinner with her and her husband last Sunday.
