Hi I haven't posted lately as December turned out to be a nightmare. Hubby had banding done end of November. Was admitted to hospital 5th December with a bleed. Things quickly went from good to bad. Were told the chances of recovery were 45/55 as his potassium level was high toxins in his blood etc. We were then advised that they wouldn't do cpr or be put on life support. Gutted to hear that but his quality of life would be poor so understood the reasons. Hubby rallied and after a stay in hospital came home. He now has suspected ascites, went in to have it drained but no fluid found. Now waiting for an ultra sound to a) check the liver and b) to locate the fluid. He's very moody which I suppose is understandable. I can't relax - the episode at the beginning of the month came with no warning so I'm on high high alert. Neurotic I think describes me well. I never knew this could be so hard and so worrying!!!
