I am so sorry for all you are dealing with.
My mother is 92 yrs old and also has a heart issue...an aortic valve stenosis that is labeled severe and she was told she should have surgery for a new valve because the current one could fail at any moment. She, like your Mom said, No, let nature takes its course, I am too old for surgery. I have come to accept and respect her decision because I have no choice. There are certain things in life you cannot control so try not let it control you ( I know, easier said then done).
Just love your Mom and be there for her because she has made her decision. I know it is difficult but I just put myself in her shoes and I know I would want my decision respected and I Would not want my daughter to be stressed by it.
Prayers being said for your Mom, your brother(we have addiction in our family too) and certainly, God Bless you.
