It's been a long time since I last posted. Thought I would drop in and give an update on my husband.
His biopsy came back negative for cancer.
Everything was going really well until December, when he started getting high ammonia levels. He was hospitalized twice in 2 weeks because of it. They were 129 when he went in the first time and went as high as 170 before they started to drop. Then a couple weeks later he had to go back and they were 167 that time, don't remember exactly how high they got that time before they got them down.
He got out of the hospital on Dec. 23, just in time for Christmas.
They had to increase his aldactone to 200mg. he is now taking 45ml of lactalose 3 times a day. It is making him so sick. Somestimes he has to take a little more than he is suppose to, just to get it to work. His weight goes up and down although he isn't eating very much and what he is eating, gets "flushed" out. I know it has to do with the fluid, but can't get it under control. He had the endoscopy done and he doesn't have any varices like they said. I'm very thankful for that. So, over all, things look pretty good for right now.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. And may everyone have a better year in 2008 than in 2007.
God bless everyone, and all are in my prayers.
