Heart Disease

I have a father whose 89 years old.   He has a ejection fraction at 12% ....  What does that mean?  And how long do you think he has to live?   I am sorry to be so up front, but; he is not a very happy person.  He also has a bladder infection because of a  huge diverticulm and huge prostate and two anerisums , one by his aoreta and one by his bladder.

thank you...   I learned a lot from this and feel that it will help me with my journey through life.  Life is so precious and we need to be there for each other and learn from our experiences.  I also will pray for such a supported group of people in the medical field and people going through their own crisis.  GBAll...
