How quickly does CHF progress? Is there anything we can do

Customer Question

How quickly does CHF progress? Is there anything we can do to keep it from progressing? My husband will be 83 this yr. and still working at Disney as "Mayor of Mainstreet USA. He loves his job. To retire would kill him. He loves people, and needs to be around them. Will th CHF kill him if he doesn't retire?
