My Father-In-Law was just diagnosed with Congested Heart Failure. He had a pretty bad heart attack a few years ago. He is 79yrs old and last weekend he had to go to the hospital. He has an enlarged prostate and was unable to urinate. So, they put a catheter in him and he voided 14lbs of fluid in 2 days. Not only that but they took out a quart of fluid from around heart as well. The ECHO test showed that he has 20% heart function. Given this information...what are his chances of survival? One year?...Two? I need to know what we are facing here given his age and history. Any input you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
