Hi and Welcome to HealingWell, sos!
I am so very sorry for your Father. I am 53 and have heart failure, along with shortness of breath, (SOB), swelling of extremities along with the abdomen. Though, there are other conditions that can have these same symptoms. So we'd just be guessing here and that's not allowed. I hope you can understand.
sos, I also had to edit your email address as the forum rules prohibit this personal info in the forum. You can make sure this is added to your private info on your bio page, by going to control panel and editing your profile.
I wish you, your Father, and the rest of your family good luck!!
