Just to say my husband passed today with multiple organ failure ultimately related to his cirrhosis. We didn't even make it to the transplant list. Of course not everyone can. So when the docs say stop drinking and eat well those are the only treatments that are in your hands whereas everything else is at their discretion, combined with lots of needles. Love each other and take care of yourselves.

So sorry. Much love. Woodtree. Xxx
So sorry for your loss. Much love xxxx
Hope this will be of some comfort. So sorry to hear of your loss.
Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I , and you are you
Whatever we were to each other , that we still are
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference in your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together
Think of me and smile
Let my name be the household name that it always was
Let it be spoken without a trace of a shadow on it
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is unbroken continuity
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight
(Canon Henry Scott-Holland)
Just wanted to add my love and prayers to the wonderful support above and say how sorry I am for your sad loss. Your advice makes a lot of sense, sadly , for some of those we love the damage is so severe by the time they get a diagnosis, there is nothing anyone can do. My younger brother was diagnosed with cirrhosis in August last year after going to the doctor with what we now know was portal hypertension, a failing spleen and ascites in June. He died at the beginning of October and it was so hard in the last few days to accept there was nothing he or the doctors could do to reverse the damage or stop its inevitable outcome.
As you say, love each other, treasure life and remember those we've lost with love and gratitude.
Love and best wishes for your future , God bless
My love, thoughts and prayers, brave lady. Wish I had the command of the language enough to find words to help you at this time of great pain. I so hope you have family, friends and much support. May you feel their strength and love.
Please look after you - it's so easy to neglect oneself at times like this.
God bless, this comes with a huge hug.
