The doctor says my 80 year old mom is very frail . What is he trying to tell me ? I know the dictionary definition for frail. But I think the doctor means something more. My mom is 80 and had open heart surgery this summer. Though she is recovering slowly, the doctor and nurses said she is very frail. What does the medical staff mean when they add she s very frail to the rest of the prognosis ?
