I visited my inlaw father today (84) after surgery yesterday, a new heart valve, one valve repaired, two major and two minor bypasses. There were complications with continous bleeding, but he is stable now, with good vitals. Due to this situation, the inlaw mother, demented to the level that she does not remember her own name, has been admitted to a permanent care taking centrum. But the father does not like that, He has always taken care of her. Getting old is nice, being old sucks. You can laugh about it, but it happens to you too, just wait.
