You will be able to get through this, just take it one step at a time.
Thank you. Hes recently been moved to ICU, had a feeding tube inserted, a central line placed on his neck and been put on oxygen. He cant walk, can barley lift his arms and has been put in restraints. His hemoglobin is really low and his bp keeps dropping to a deathly low. My family and I are doing our best to support each other and him. None of us have given up on him but we dont want to see him suffer anymore. We were told the transplant team is trying to get a meeting with the board to get approval to move him to the top of the liver transplant list, but so far it looks like the board is still going to make him wait until he attends alcohol awareness classes which hes to weak and sick to do. Its just really hard to see him suffer like this.
