Our family has known for a few months that my mother has cirrhosis of the liver and rheumatiod arthritis. We've done our research, googled the good... the bad... and the ugly.

It wasn't until last night that my mom was in the ER (for something typically minor) that reality hit. The doctors made us painfully aware that due to her liver illness there could be several (Scary) underlying causes for her situation. We had to make the call to her specialist in houston, notifying him that we were at the hospital and it seemed that every nurse was on high alert since my mother is on "The Donar List".

Long story short- the doctor was relieved that her symptoms were in fact a typical situaion and suggested a follow up.

Kinda like going in for a slight fever and getting and EKG... just in case.
