Hello, well I saw my brother and mother last weekend. He was at the store!, so I guess he is on an upswing again. His mental clarity seemed pretty good also. We both went to turn in his paperwork for food stamps and then went to his GP office. They did NOT send any of his paperwork over to Seattle and still one hospital they did not contact! It has been almost 2 months. And right in the front of his chart was the email of all the info they needed and name address and fax of U of W transplant facility to send everything to. Well, I was all over them (in a nice way) and I had U of W immediately fax over HIPAA releases and filled out a HIPAA release with the GP as well. His last and only MRI was almost 6 months ago, I am wondering if he should have an updated one done. Do you know how often they usually update them because we want everything done that Medicaid will cover, done in his state. He is also checking on an excercise program he might be able to get into at the hospital that does his paracentesis. TIPS is not out of the question until a Hepatologist sees him. Also, my mom found a GI/Liver Disease Dr about
45 min north of where he lives, and one of my patients told me about
a Hepatologist in my area (3 hours from my brother) so I went down and picked up his business card and gave it to my brother. I told my mom to find out if the GI/Liver Disease Dr that is north of them is actually a Hepatologist. We had a nice time together, 3 of us sisters, my mom, my brother and my grandson. Celebrated a birthday also and ate wonderful, healthy home cooked food. My brother makes some killer spaghetti sauce from scratch too.
Well, I will keep you posted, praying the Lord blesses and keeps you safe. By the way, anyone on here on Facebook?
