Will my Mum be OK ?

A few months ago, my Mum went to the hospital to get a part of hear heart removed because she didnt need it. It is common for people to have this but I cannot remember the name of it. Anyway, her operation wasnt sucessful so she had to get a pacemaker . She has had some check-ups and the doctors said it was working fine, until, last time she went for a check-up the doctors said that it isnt working as well as it should. My Mum used to take tablets to help her before her operations but she only got her operations so she wouldnt have to take them anymore. She said that she doesnt want to go through the operation again and that she s not going back to her tablets. :( I am very close to my Mum so it worries me what could happen to her if she doesnt take her tablets because her pacemaker isnt working as it should. Is their any chance she could die?? :( I don t want her to : ( Is it possible for it to happen : (

Sweetheart ... you need to be posing these questions to your mother's doctors .. not to Yahoo Answers. They are the only ones who know the depth of your mother's medical problems and the only ones who can answer your questions with medical efffectiveness. However, it seems your real question is about your fear that your mother may die. Well, we all die eventually, its the path we are put on from the moment we are born ... its just a matter of when and how. No one ever wants someone they care so deeply about to die. But remember, when she passes (and eventually she will as we all must) ... you will morn YOUR loss, not hers. Enjoy her while she is here .. ask her questions, learn her knowledge and gain a sense of your history ... and relish the fact that you've had the opportunity to do that! Hold her hand .. kiss her.. tell her how much you love her. She may be around for many more years ... or she may go any moment ... we all face that reality ... the point is to love and share now ... and leave no regrets that you spent too much time with the doctors ... and not enough with her!
