I forget instantly and cant focus on anything anymore, please help

What happened to my brain during my heart failure. I forget instantly and can't focus on anything anymore.
I recently was pregnant and had to have my labor induced 6 weeks early because I had Heart Faliure. They did all kinds of test while the baby was still inside of me. CAT scans, ECOS, ect... Finally they induced. Now I am on Coreg, Digoxen, Lasix, Lusinaprel, and one more. Plus I have to ake asprin everyday. They said that my heart only works at 20% now. WOW. My concern is; why the hell can't I remember anything any more. I forget important stuff almost instantly. I'm almost in tears trying to figure out what it was I was going to do. Why is this happening to me?? I'm only 34. What's going on inside of me??

With heart failure you get less oxygen to the brain than normal. It causes memory loss. Also you just had a baby, new mothers OFTEN suffer memory loss. You need to talk to your doctor about this. I would question the 20% also as anything under 33% is considered very questionable for survival.
