Karin, I'm speachless you have written you story so well that I feel all your pain and helplessness. I know some drugs are different in the UK then here. For constipation we found the senokot S worked best it is an over the counter drug here. The confusion could be caused by the toxins from the liver shutting down, but other things can cause it as well, with dad we found when he went without sleep any length of time he also would have confusion but you did say your mama was sleeping. My mama shakes with her hands as well and we learned it was a side effect of her thyroid medicine. Its so hard for you to be a caregiver to both parents and I hope you are able to have a break for yourself as well each day, even if its just 10 minutes for Karin.

My best friend lives in the UK. I know I won't spell this right but maybe I can get it close enough that you'll know where...she lives across the river Mercy from Liverpool in Birkenhead on the Whiddle. I visited her last May and had the best time. We went to Whales and stayed at a little bed and breakfast. She is a 7 year whipple survivor.

As for relatives, you can always say now is not a good time to visit if you would prefer them not to come. Just remember you can call the shots. Hugs Lillie
