Hi all -
In less than one month, my fiancé of 12 years, passed away from cirrhosis of the liver and was told LAST NOVEMBER!
My heart aches for those feeling the symptoms he felt (at fifty years young) and he drank potent liquors (I have pictures of all the bottles, in assorted sizes, that he had hidden)
He had swelling in places you would not want! Abdomen (ascites) arms, fingers, legs/etc.
He was on many medications, diuretics too, had over 16 blood transfusions in over three weeks time, at two hospitals, after all the tests he had and the last conclusion, his doctor recommended was a hospice center/home and that was his ending, after he signed off on no machines/etc. to sustain his life further!!! (When he was able to do so)
I wish you ALL luck, have all the tests needed and switch doctors if needed. I to, drink wine after getting home from my stressful job, that I love but stopped, then started again but stopped for good now, as I don't want to put my older daughters/etc. through the bad events I /his family went through. We were to be married this November for our 13th anniversary but WE never did get that far. 'I' have LOTS of happier RECENT memories of him, his love, laughs, sharing his deep heartfelt feelings, and poems he wrote, letters, places we went and so much more, that I'm very grateful for, not just past memories!!!! But the sadness and more will be a part of me forever!!! WE will be together again, as he told me over and over when he was feeling poorly. I know this to be true! Amen! I love and miss you, your amazing humor, and sage advice too!!! So much more I won't share here <<tears>> Blessings all (Be safe for you and your loved ones, is all I can say). Believe! You have time to turn it ALL around. Then, take action to do so! I care. Blessings!!! - S -
