Medical Mystery

My dad is very sick. He had heart failure in feb. had triple bypass and a pacemaker placed. He then had carotid artery cleared, which Dr. said he had never seen anything like his, they were bunched up into the back of his head and needed to be pulled down to be cleaned out. Since then he has steadily gone down hill. He went to the hospital and was diagnosed with congestive hear failure. A week later he was having a hard time breathing and went to the ER. He was given 5 units of blood and plasma because his blood count was so low. They still dont know where the blood went. They placed drain tubes into heart to drain fluid. He has had every heart test, and shows he has a strong heart, valves good, pumps good. Then his heart stopped again. Funyy thing is the first time and this time after cpr was given he just opened his eys like nothing had happened. Drs. are sayting they have never seen this before, all the symptoms and problems and they cant find anything wrong with him. They placed a defibrulator and sent him home. He got home yesterday, and last night had a horrible night, up vomitting, fluid starting to come back in arms legs and stomach. Nothing is helping him, Can anyone give any ideas. Everything is summed up as best I could to make this short. As you can imagine there is a ton more I could put. We are at a loss and he is not doing well, there are no answers.
