i just wanted to give an update. it has been 1 wk to the day that hospice told me that my husband would only have a few wks. well today he is doing worse. he has been sleeping alot, and if he is awake he is confused. they told me that uping his lactulose is not an option, it won't help, my heart jst continues to break
he had a few good days last week where is was eating really well and then on friday he kinda took another turn for the worse. my family and friends have been here all week and my grandmother has been staying the nights w/me and the kids. between her and my sister-in-law they have sure been a blessing. he is starting to swell pretty bad in the abdominal area and they decided to cath him today. i didn't realize that with this disease that the stomach would get hard. has anyone experienced this? i really got scared last night and called the nurse on call, she came out and told me that this is just the process of the disease. i am having a hard time grasping this....
don't know when i will get back on, just wanted to keep you in the loop.
thoughts and prayers,
