It has been a very long time since posting.
This forum saved me over a decade ago when Dougie was first diagnosed with cirrhosis due to alcohol. Many ups and downs over the years. Posters on this forum have given me wonderful advice and support. I am and will be forever grateful.
Dougie and I are both doing fine. We are both vaccinated, and have been surviving Covid time. Dougie has been sober (for real this time) since November 2017. He does yoga daily and really is a new man. He had another (3rd time) heart stent placed in January 2021. He continues to work 2 days a week.
My job went virtual in March 2020, and over that time I am now working 3 days in office, two days at home. Last month I had a left total knee replacement after suffering with arthritis and limping around for 4+ years. Recovery has been much harder than I anticipated, but I am improving slowly. Dougie took great care of me.
I pray for all of you, my liver friends, in my daily prayers. Old timers mamalama, ziff, ppmguy, sandia, david, connie, and others you all have a place in my heart.
