Butterflythree, did you know that they can RX an appetite stimulant? I would ask his Dr when you go there on Thursday. He can hardly afford to lose any more weight and become malnutritioned. They put my mom on it at my request and it did help alot. She was eating a fair amount for awhile. In fact on a humorous note, she even ate hot dogs which she absolutely NEVER ate before the medicine. Maybe it was because she was so confused at that time and didn't remember that she hated them.
Butterfly three My husband has some of the same symptoms as yours. His amonia level went to 86 on Wed. I gave him 2 tablespoons of Lactalose every hour for 4 hours. He turned into a pooping machine but it worked. He's much clearer headed now. He has to be drained every 10 to 14 day now since they lowered his meds because of dehydration. He can barely walk. Is your husband that weak? Mine has lost 75 lbs. He has never had any swelling his his feet or legs. I was really interested that Shelly mentioned antibotics. Jerry has had three sinus infections this winter and I notice when he's on the antibotics he gets so much better! He eats better and generally feels better. Also I wanted to tell you I make Jerry fresh fruit smoothies and add a scoop of Soy Protein. It seems to help him. I was using Whey Protein but found out that was not good when his amonia levels go up. Hope I helped.
