to all, I haven't posted for a while as the last time my son had paracentesis it hasn;t come back so now he feels like it never will and is doing what he wants to including drinking his 12 beers a day. I do not badger him anymore about his drinking as I might as well talk to the wall, and neither does my DIL (God bless her) as she too can see it does no good.
There is a 10 yr old daughter involved in this too and she too can;t see why her daddy won;t stop drinking.
I suppose now it is just a waiting game until he becomes ill again. I read other threads where people do everything in their power to keep the illness at bay and my son just does not give a darn.
He looks awful with the orangish gray palor but says he feels great. Just wanted my 2 cents worth in the forum that sometimes you just cannot do a thing, just watch and pray. I guess the alcoholism is going to win out in the end. Thanks for letting me share my troubles when yours are so much greater.
