    Does he need immediate medical attention?
    My husband has C.H.F. he is displaying obvious signs of both right and left failure and is displaying a level 4! He wants to wait until tomorrow to seek medical attention, obviously this is ill advised but stubborn. Oh I also need to mention that he is not currently taking his medication for C.H.F. or his diabetes and instead has been engaging in recreational drug use! 😠 Can he manage another 24 hours or are we possibly hours or minutes from a significant heart episode?

    Are you relying on complete strangers to possibly decide the fate of your husband? If you are worried, and you sound like you are, then get him checked out. Not taking his meds and using recreational drugs sounds like trouble to me. Get him help.

    He has congestive heart failure and diabetes, and you are asking us for advice ? What is your gut reaction to this telling you and why are you waiting for complete strangers to tell you what to do??

    And on top of that recreational drug use?

    Yes, get him somewhere where he can get the proper help he needs !
