Hi, dio@76, I just want to send condolences to you and your family during this trying time. I know what you are going through. I lost my mother to Cardiomyopathy, it's a heart condition that wasn't diagnosed until she flat-lined. I also lost my aunt to lung cancer, one day she was up and dancing, and the next, gone. I don't have any suggestions but I do want you to do research, don't give up! Some doctors don't care for the patient, just the practice. See specialists who can help, don't take one opinion as definite. Take charge in this and find the reason. What will hurt your family the most won't be that he passed (God forbid), but the fact that no one knows why or how. I wish I had the resources then when my mother past, maybe she would have been saved. Same for my aunt. From what you have expressed already, it sounds like Alcoholic Liver Disease, but again, I'm not an expert. I pray that your family find peace and enjoy the time with your uncle, if it is truly his time. I also hope you can get to the bottom of this in time. Please stick with us here on Healing Well, there is always someone to talk to. Everyone here has 0 judgement and 100% compassion and understanding. Please let me know how things go.
