I am so stressed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My FIL is in the hospital with cirrhosis of the liver, he's been an alcoholic at least 30 years I've known him, He is full of fluid, internal beeding,jaudiced, he is refusing all tests, just being miserable. I am so stress, my DH loves his Dad so much. He is taking off work to go and try to reason with his Dad. I know he is wasting his time, FIL doesn't listen to anyone. All the kids (5) are argueing over what to do.They are all adults. They lost their Mom a year ago. I get so angry that he has done this to himself, his drinking has put his family through hell. I am both sad and angry at the same time

For your FIL to be okay even if hes stubborn!
I had problems with alcoholism in my family too so I know what you are going through. My grandpa died from cirrhosis of the liver on my birthday several years back. Alcoholism is not pretty...

Hope everything goes better for all of you

I'm sorry you are so stressed You need to take some time for yourself to unwind.

Please don't be mad at your FIL. Alcoholism is a real disease, not unlike Cancer. The only difference is that you can't quit Cancer. It's easy to say that he did this to himself, but he really didn't. The disease did it to him, and he wasn't strong enough in his life to fight the alcholism disease. Unfortunately the disease is stronger than many.

I know he could just quit. he's been drinking so long. I just heard they were supposed to drain 6 liters of water off of him this afternoon, the Drs were unable to, so I guess they try again tomorrow, My Dh is going into the city to see him. The Drs are pretty sure that the damage is severe, he is not likely to recover.
