My mother is 77 and has had a pacemaker for 6 years. She lost her father and 3 other siblings to heart problems.Her battery has been changed twice already because it is working so hard. Last year the doctor wanted to put in a 3rd wire but there wasn t enough room so we have just the 2.Last week we were told her upper chambers are no longer working after a EKG was ran.We just had a 9 day hospital stay with pneumonia and CHF. Can you tell me what to expect from this point. Can the pacemaker keep her going or will the heart just keep getting weaker till the end.

My father (77 yrs old) is telling me that he is having pretty strong lower back pain and pains in stomach center and towards left side of body . This started yesterday after eating a fast food burrito. He threw up with in 2 hours of eating the burrito. He had a bowl of cereal for dinner and did not vomit. However when he had a bowl of cereal this morning he did vomit again. He says that the pains have continued all day today. He was able to eat some chicken soup for lunch today but the pains are still strong. He also took some Malox this morning. He says there is no pain in chest or arm. I told him to make sure he eats only bland foods until things settle down. Does this sound like typical food poisoning?
