[More]im or maybe it is too late. I don't know. We are on hospice but I am not going to give up. We are at the stage now of edema, ascites, and high amonia levels. I am just trying to understand this disease. I came into his life after his dx and his prev wife died. we have been married for two years. He found out about the dx when he was already a stage 5. He does not drink or anything like that. He worked in a chemical and waste plant for years and it seems he picked it up there b/c lots of his co workers were dx also. Just trying to get through another day
