Hello everyone! I thought I'd drop a piece of information I found out recently. Now for those on my friends list,if you have read my journal this will be a repeat. But for those of you who aren't on my list,here it is...liver disease can be a cause of brain bleeds. We have lived with cirrhosis for 2 years and I have tried very hard to learn everthing I can about what cirrhosis does to the body. Well I am continuing to learn. Hubby has been having seizures(he has never has seizures before). It was found he has brain bleeds. The medical personnel kept asking if he had a head injury,as that is the most common cause of brain bleeds(he had not). Of course I told the medical people that hubby has cirrhosis,but that did not seem to connect(to them) any reason that brain bleeds and cirrhosis corralated to each other. We had to wait a month to get in to a nurologist. While waiting I did some internet searches,and sure enough,at the bottom of the list for causes of brain bleeds..there it was,..lliver diesases. When we went to the nurologist,he also kept asking if hubby injured his head. I told him what I had found on the internet,he said yes,and then said that hubby's brain bleeds were spontanious from the damage done to his body from cirrhosis. SOOOOO...add brain bleeds to the list from bleeds from varices also. Just FYI.

I found out...
We have to ditch our mattress because of the past couple of hurricanes dumped so much rain and moisture, the bottom of our mattress went moldy. It's a memory foam with a gel layer, one of the most comfortable mattresses I've ever had. My husband doesn't want to buy another memory foam because it costs too much money so he's trying to convince me to try going back to a spring coil mattress....
