I just got off the phone with Big sister who gave me her permission to post the good news about her brother.
Friday night, after being released from another hospital, he became quite ill and she rushed him to the VA hospital here in Phoenix. Because she had been getting information together, they were able to get him in the system and admitted immediately.
He is now on a proper low-protein, low-sodium, fluid-restricted diet and will be seeing the staff doctors tomorrow. We know that it's right, because he's cranky! They are treating the fluid problems in his belly and he will, probably, be referred to the liver program tomorrow.
Just wanted to share the good news.
Fiance had HCV, cirrhosis, ESLD, ascites, and portal hypertension. Was transplanted June 2004. Now, on interferon and ribavirin. Hepatitis C is back.
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
