I am trying to understand this horrible disease. My Mom has been fighting it for years now. She has never been a drinker. She developed hers from a fatty liver. Just in the last few weeks she has been getting really confused, but it is getting worse. It is really scaring the family. Just here lately she had 6 1/2 liters of fluid removed off of her stomach. The Doctors told us that her confusion could be caused because her ammonia levels are high. I guess I'm just wanting to know what to expect next. I hate to see her in pain!!! She is the most amazing woman I have ever meet, and I am blessed to call her MOM!!!

QUESTIONS THAT GO THROUGH MY HEAD...
*How long does she have
*Is she in the last stage
*What can I do to help her.....
