my son was unconscious in July, in the hospital for a month, very weak , had paracentesis twice and looked like he wasn;t gonna make it. In the last month, he no longer has ascetis, is getting stronger by the day, still has muscle wasting, but not as bad, seems to be coming out of it. He still drinks his beer every day. Can;t figure out how he can come out of it this way after being almost dead.
My question is (and I know no one has a crystal ball) is he going to get better and better or is this just a lull in his well being. It is difficult for me to understand how he can come back so good as he has cirrhosis, hep c, heart failure, etc. Am I getting my hopes up too high or do some people come back to almost normal? Or is this a yo-yo disease that will drive the caregiver nuts. Any comment would be appreciated. Don;t want to get my hopes up to high and then fall down like a rock.
