Hi, all,
 
This is a very depressing time for our family. My MIL has slipped into a coma due to liver failure and alcoholism for many years. She was fine on Thursday. Went to get her hair done, went shopping and the following day, made a 180. She was in hospital for a total of 3 1/2 mos 3 months ago and recovered but this happend and the doc says end-stage liver failure. She was so lifeless and unresponsive. Her amonia level was 270 and normal is 30. They now have it down to  90 and she is a bit more responsive.
 
This is very hard for my husband as we watched his dad die the same way. Just please pray that the Lord be in control of this situation. Remember, there is strength in numbers!
Hugs
Sue 
There is no such word as can't. Can't simply means wouln't. Grab as much as life as you can. Future is a long way away for those who don't believe. Don't build a foundation of life on sand. It will take it away with the tide. Love a little more, be unkind a lot less.

Thank youfor all your prayers and thoughts. She is a bit better but in no way out of the woods. They are trying to decide what course of treatmewnt to use. Her amonia level was 270 and normal is 30. It is down to 90 now.

Thoughts are with you and your family.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
