Hi, I'm new to your forum. Just needed somewhere to go to talk to other people right now. My mom is 51 yrs old and has hep C, and now is in the end stages of liver disease. She is on lactulose and is sleeping most of the time. The ammonia level in her body is high. They are trying to stablize, but having a hard time. I am the oldest of four and have to be really strong for the others. I am having a hard time imagining my mother not here. How do I keep up face. I just don't know what to do.
