Mom is 92yrs old ...she went hospital 2 was ago

Mom is 92yrs old ...she went hospital 2 was ago overnight. ..they upped usage of cpac (oxygen) to 24/7...doing fine now with oxy. Also increased her dosage of cartia to 240mg from 180mg. Went to followup with prime dr yesterday...her BP was 93/57, so prime drsaid go back to 180mg until she reviews with cardio next wk. today she took the 180mg and her BP was 112/48 (however her home metro might be off on diastolic about 10 low) right after waking from nap ... will try in little while with my BP meter to compare. How concerned should I be about low diastolic ... she has always seemed on the low end, but not quite that low.

My 92 year old mother recently (36 days ago) had an aortic valve replacement. She came through the surgery but developed complications later and remains in hospital. 4 days ago she was put on life support after she developed fluid around her heart and her heart rate increased to dangerous levels. MRI shows there is no damage to the brain however attempts to bring her out have not been successful. Is there a point where Drs feel that being in this state becomes a danger to her recovery?

For the past few days, I ve been having breathing problems when lying down conscious, during deep sleep, I ve had to wake up gasp for air couldn t breathe. Right now, I m having trouble breathing. Yes, I m 5 2 approximately 275 lbs., but my psychiatric medications, depression, stress caused me to gain weight. One of my brothers is so mentally abusive that he told me that dying of obesity is a stupid way to die, that he s not ready to go to another funeral. It s NOT MY fault I m obese. Now, I m 23 yrs. old he threatened to tell my FORMER foster mother to get a rescue team for me. Why is he trying to stress me out scare me, enough for me to have an increased risk of death by a heart attack or stroke? I already had 2 strokes @ the age of 5. I tried to tell my biological mom what he said, she didn t want to hear it, but I have to hear her babble about my other brother talk a hole in my head she s a motor mouth who won t shut up.
