My dad has been sick for a while...so I'm gonna summarize the situation. -had a kidney trasnplant at 26, he's 54 now -2 years went into a coma, turned out to be liver failure (probably from the rejection meds, he's not a drug/alcohol user) -now is trying to get on the liver/kidney transplant list at UCLA -is in the hospital about 4 times a year with the liver problems, which is extreme confusion/depression -has lost 50 lbs over this time Now he is in the hospital again and it's worse this time and looks like he may not leave. It has been 5 days, which is usually about the time he gets out. His confusion is better, but his kidney function is bad. He has one test left before the transplant team makes their decision on his transplant...it's an angiogram where they need to use contrast fluid, this could throw his into total kidney failure and he would need to be on dialysis...not sure of the effect on the liver. They are probably just going to end up doing the test because his liver only has a few months left as well as his kidney before he passes anyway, so the transplant is his only hope, so hopefully the test won't do too much damage. Also, he's getting a blood transfusion today because his white blood count is low. Problem is that now he has really lost his will to live. Before he was so excited about the transplant and talking about going back to school to be a paralegal, and fixing up his car. It breaks my heart and we've tried to talk to him and say that he's young and we need him still and my sister is only 19 and his mom lives with my parents, but he says we hate him, etc etc. I really don't know what to do, at all. On top of all of this, on the way to the hospital on Monday my mom flipped her car 3 times and totaled it. Luckily she is totally fine besides a few bruises, but obviously shaken up and very worried about eventually telling my dad about it.
