MMB: So sorry for your loss. I have an unknown liver disease that they tell me must have been on going for over 20 years. I am at end stage liver disease . It was never diagnosed since my lab work had never shown anything unusual. Till I had the encepalopathy attack. That is now under control. I have been told that even though I have no severe symptoms, and am low on the MELD score, I could turn for the worse in a matter of hours. There is no treatment, I just have to watch my diet .
A few months ago while visiting one of my sisters in another city I walked past her ((sister inlaws house)). I stopped to visit her because I had heard she was ill , she also had the same disease I have . She looked quite well. She passed away about a month ago, suddenly.
She had given me my first hair cut when I was around 8 years old.
Her husband was the one on kidney dialisis. He passed away last week. Just gave up.
You did every thing you could just being there with him. My prayers go out to you and your family members.
