Lori’s Story—There is hope—that hope is you

I am in a long battle with liver disease, it started as fatty liver and as the years went by I went into NASH Non-alcoholic Steatohepatits, now I have cirrhosis. During this time my liver function would decrease and then come back to normal and I would feel well again. As of late, I have been having bouts with my ammonia level and it has gone dangerously high. That causes me to lose memory, my mood changes and I would be unlike myself. I would have to be hospitalized for several days until the levels came back to normal stage.

Went back to UVA on October4. Saw the social worker to finalize our caretaker plan and we also say the hematologist. She clears the heparin allergy. I am not allergic. That is a good thing. They will meet about all potential candidates for transplants. I hope to hear something Thursday, October 11 if I am listed or not.

Over the weekend we closed the 50?50 Raffle. The pot was 1920.00. 3 names was drawn. All 3 names told me to keep their portion. That’s a good person that wants you to have it back. You don’t see that many people in the world. Also we held a corn hole tournament. There was 5 teams, we still had a good time. And some really good hot dogs thanks to Joe Rage. Next up is Paparazzi. Make sure you watch and buy buy buy!
