Five years ago my brother-in-law died of liver failure. He had cancer and was not eligible for a transplant. My wife had just lost her father and was a basket case and I was unemployed so I was very involved in his health care including hospice care. We have a neighbor with the same issue only he has blood type AB and the doctors are having a hard time finding him a liver because of his rare blood type. My wife saw him this morning and overnight his stomach had swollen up from water retention. That is not good news, it means he is getting near the end if he doesn't get a new liver soon. We love this guy so we forced him to call the doctor even though he didn't want to. I don't know if that was the right thing to do but is is what we did. We have been trying to help him out for some time but he will only except a little help from us. When he got sick his wife left him with his two daughters, cleaned out the bank account and went back to Europe. I don't have a problem being chauffer,cook, friend or anything else he needs but he has a hard time accepting help. I just hope the doctors find him a liver real soon.
