things are actually pretty good at the house now. Bill's amonia levels must be down to an exceptable level as he is aware of the dangers ahead of him if he doesnt follow the doctors orders. He finally figured out that he had better learn to like the lactolose, because that will be a three times a day drink for him (better than vodka and oj for breakfast). He says he is to strong and stubborn to die (this is very true). Unfortunately his vitamin K is not leveling out, and he is having nose bleeds, and his teeth are bleeding. After figureing out his blood sugar levels, his attitude and strength seem to be much better. Michele and i think he is in better shape now than the week of so before he went into the hospital. Unfortunately we were unaware of what symptoms to look out for, now if we see him slipping, we will check him in sooner rather than later i guess. The doctors told michele that he probally has a year to live, but he didnt rule out miracles. i guess i will just enjoy the time we have with a sober father in law and go from there. i think if he sticks with the diabetic diet and takes his meds, he can quite possible beat the odds.
