My mom is 82. I have been telling her doctor for months that she hardly eats and is not absorbing what she does. she eats a decent breakfast but that is it. For a long time the doctor kept telling me that is not abnormal for her age, but now she has been diagnosed with Cirrhosis of the liver, and because she has a HMO I have to wait for the specialist to tell me how advanced it is. But I think she is scared and is depressed because out of a 24 hour day she sleeps about 16 maybe 20 she sleeps over 12 years in the night and a two hour nap on the after and cat naps the rest of the time she can't stay awake is this from the Cirrhosis or depression. or both and what can I do to make it better!
