My Dear Teresa,
 
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I had no idea Mark was in a coma and am so saddened by the news. We are there for you.
 
I know how frightening this must be for you and Mark. Wish I were there to hug and support you.
 
Love you both,
Ma

Teresa said,
The hospital just called, and said he was trying to get out of bed and his restraints and he was going to have to be moved to a sitter room. Doesn't know who he is or where he is. He will be possibly be on the 2nd floor. Good sign he is waking up.

Hello All,

Thank-you so much for your Thoughts and Prayers! They mean so much to us! I could not have made without the Lords help! Mark is doing so much better! They were giving him 300cc of lactulose every 3 hours, via Naso Gastric tube. They removed the NG tube and his catheter today, and have cut the lactulose down. They started IV antibiotics, they believe he has an infection that may have contributed to the coma (a UTI). The transplant team is seeing him and have ordered several test. I am hoping they will finish his testing before he goes home. They have moved him to a private room, he no longer needs a sitter. I am going to stay home tonight and chill, since he is doing so well.

Love, Hugs, and Prayers to All!

Teresa

Great news Teresa,

I'm so relieved Mark is continuing his journey back and doing much  better.  It sounds like he is getting excellent care and the work-up by the transplant team is an added bonus.

It's amazing what a little UTI can do to someone with Cirrhosis. That's exactly what happened to Gene two years ago.

Take care of yourself and Michael and enjoy chilling out for the evening. Hopefully Mark will be home soon.

Love you,

Ma

That is great news, Teresa! We all have been very concerned. You must be totally exhausted, so you have the right idea in staying home and "chilling" now that you know Mark is stable. A good sleep will make a huge difference.

Keep us posted!

Hugs,
Connie

Hello my Friends,
Mark was discharged yesterday evening, I think maybe too soon. He had some trouble with his Blood Sugars being too high. When we checked it last night it was 422. They have started him on insulin twice a day, it did bring it down to 249, by the time we went to bed. This morning it was 213. Hopefully it will level out and come down some more. They will adjust it in a week, with his follow up appointment. He has also come home on antibiotics, for the UTI. He is mentally clear, does a few goofy things (but not too bad). I am so relieved. Mark has taken this incident very hard and has been very upset. Michael has done well, he told me God was taking care of his dad and not to worry. Thank-you for your prayers and thoughts. Hope everyone is doing okay, my Prayers are with you also!
 
Hugs
Teresa

Hi Teresa,
 
Fortunately Mark has an excellent nurse in his home as well as a young spiritual adviser.
 
I'm very relieved that he is improving; it always takes time to get back on track and hopefully Mark's blood sugar will stay in a safe range.
 
At this point there probably wasn't much else they could do in the hospital and Mark will benefit from the nurturing attention he gets at home. There is nothing like sleeping in ones own bed alongside the person you love. It will be good for both of you.
 
Prayers will continue for the three of you.
 
Hugs,
Ma

Hi teresa, i'm relieved to hear that Mark is Ok & back at home.A lot of times it seems like they send us home too soon but I guess they know out of danger & stable is about as good as it's going to get. Hopefully the encephalopathy he is still exhibiting will be controlled once again soon.He will be much more comfortable at home anyway & will probably do better with those he loves around him. Less stress for Mark.Liver does screw up our sugar levels bad & can even cause us to be come diabetic as it can no longer break sugars down.I hope this comes back into control for him.Yes Mark would take this incident hard. It's pretty scary waking up & not knowing where you are, how you got there & why etc. Young Michael is right, God will take care of his daddy. I hope you are doing ok too. My thoughts & prayers are with you, Mark & young Michael. Love & Hugs. later.....

Hi teresa, Glad Mark is home and hope the blood sugar levels out. It's a pity they can't keep patients in hospital a few mkore days, until they are really well enough to go home but I guess there is always someone waiting for that empty bed the minute a patient is discharged. Take care.
