My husband had much the same thing. He had the Varices in his esophagus though and they still couldn't band them. It was just too much. The Varices cause blood to seep into the stomach, sooner or later I'm afraid this will come out one way or another. You should ask the doctor to prepare you for what might happen if you are bringing your husband home. The varices is caused by poor liver function. Sorry to say my husband lived about 3 weeks after the varices was discovered. I certainly don't want to scare you, but do be prepared. The doctors never told me what the outcomes can be and I learned from someone on the board. I was so happy to get the information, and then went back and asked the doctors. I know of someone else that had this for about 3 months, it just depends how bad the bleeding is. You will know more Friday when you talk to his doctor. Take care and I will pray for you and hour husband. Marie
