I need advice?

Post by Amy »

I need some advice or answers. My uncle is 52 years old and has been an alcoholic for about 20 years. He has been drinking more heavily the last 5 years. He was in a motorcycle accident about 20 something yrs ago. He had his spleen removed and he only has 1 kidney and had his stomach repaired, and had to repair his liver. He is in advance stages of hep c and has been the hospital for the past 2 months. He has been in ICU for 2 months on and off the vent and had a trach for a while as well. He was given liquids and they were not thickened after the trach was removed and aspirated serval times. He has very high amonia levels and confusion and all the rest that comes with HE. So my question is he now has a DNR and personally think there is some kind of help out there. What should we do? Is the hope for him and should we keep fighting for him.
