So, we found out about a month ago my dad has stage 3 liver disease and has for about a year now, at least. Since his diagnosis he has deteriorated very quickly. Ammonia levels are very high and he is very confused and disoriented. He has wasted away to nothing but skin and bone, except he has ascites that makes him look about 9 months pregnant. He has black bruises all over his arms, extremely swollen ankles and feet. The bottoms of his feet are turning orange now. He is itching all over and can barely stay awake for an hour before he goes for a nap. He has started to get bad diarrhea a couple days ago and now is convinced the reason he feels this way is because he has a virus. I came home to try and convince him to go to the emergency room because he is so uncomfortable and hasn't ate in 3 days, and has had one glass of water. He won't listen to my mom and gets very defensive when she tries to talk to him about it. I can't stand watching him like this anymore, he needs help even if it's just to feel comfortable.
