Child4, this was wonderful news for me to come home to! As you may know, I've been away since Aug. 12th, having a hip revision and rehab.
Your mom's body is having to adjust to the new liver and new way of functioning. Everyone seems to go through some trials after transplant. It's just something you have to be patient with. The medical staff know what they are doing, so you have to trust them. The encephalopathy could very well be the medication she is receiving, or it could be that her body is not yet clear of the toxins. She was very ill, indeed. You all are going to need a lot of patience in the coming weeks and months. Anyone whose loved one has gone through transplant can tell you that recovery is a rocky period. Just hang in there and keep the faith that got you this far!
