Medical update from Doug: Apparently the blood clot in the large vein entering my liver has taken up residence somewhere else in my body or has dissolved. Not sure which. That means no blood thinners or a TIPS procedure at this time. Certainly good news but it does cause a little concern not knowing exactly what happened to it. I'm now down to checking my MELD score every 3 months waiting for it to reach a level that would qualify me for the transplant list and having EGD'S as necessary to treat the varicies and keep my esophagus as open as possible. Unfortunately we've exhausted all ideas for the near constant nausea and..... You get the picture. To say I'm sick of being sick would be an incredible understatement. But it is what it is. That's all for now. Thanks for caring everybody. Love you.
