We are both retired and have many health problems. Chronic pain resulting from these health concerns is wearing us down. We take care of each other the best we can but it's hard to stay positive when you're in pain. We both have had a triple bi-pass operation. I suffer angina if I rush doing things or don't take it easy.
One of the arteries that they used for the bi-pass is clogged and my cardiologist says that due to the area it is in surgery would be risky and not always successful.
My husband has degenerative disk disease (all of his discs are affected). He also has had a number of attacks of pneumonia which has affected his kidneys. He has had a few occasions where he tries to stand but has no strength to hold himself up and he falls, twice hitting his head. I couldn't lift him and had to call 911. He was hospitalized a few times when this happened.
