My husband was diagnosed with end stage cirrhosis about a month ago. He has known for years that he had this horrible disease but never slowed down. His Doc really doesn't answer alot of my questions--maybe someone here can help me. He has ascites and severe edema and was hospitalized for two days last week because of his low sodium level. He is sleeping most of the days. His mind is a little confused daily also. It is getting too bad to leave him alone. I have been staying home to do the caregiving as this is what I want to do. I want to know what down the road for him. We live in Hawaii and have sons in the mainland going to college. I want them to come home before things get too bad to visit their father. I would like to know when things will get too bad. Can anyone give me a time frame and what will be going on with my husband in the future?
