They didn't give Jerry any meds except for lasics and lactalose. His is Hep C induced with no alcohol or drug related. He was given 6 mo to a year and they have now reduced that to maybe the 6 mos. He is now being evaluated to be put on the list and hopefully will be on it by next week, I'm not holding my breath, but I am praying.
Good luck with your husband, I do know if there is alcohol involved, then he has to go to AA.
We are home again. I think they have all the test done for the evaluation and it now goes before the evaluation board to see if he will go on the list.
Take care all

Thanks Pink Grandma. The itching seems to become bearable or he is just getting used to it. Now it's nose bleeds, he's been having them, but now they are more often and lasting longer and he blows out clots of blood at times. His MELD score has now gone to 28 and they are trying to get all the testing done. We have a pulmonary test and more lab and TB test tomorrow. I understand why everyone tells the caregiver to take of themselves, this has got to be the hardest thing I've ever done, just watching him going downhill all the time. But I know we will get thru this, God has got us this far and he will see us thru the rest of it. If anyone has any ideas about the nose bleeds let me know.
Thanks and God bless all of you
He does the same thing with the kleenex. We went to the doctor today, real bad trip, he was throwing up and had nose bleeds all the way there and while we were there, they finally gave us some phenegren and that really helped. We couldn't do the test, but they did tell they are going to present his case next tuesday, so maybe he will be on the list soon.
