Dad still looks handsome in his Letterman jacket! His dad painted that picture of him when he was a Senior in High School!
Daniel (Tiff's little guy) hanging out on the couch with Papa. This picture was taken not long after his last hospitalization (8/10/11). You can see all his bandages through his shirt. They had drained 2 1/2 liters of fluid off his abdomen.
That's something I wanted to point out. You can tell dad has lost a lot of weight in his face. His abdomen is swollen with fluids (the fluid his liver can't processes). Plus he has a hernia that the doctors don't feel is urgent to repair. He also has swollen legs+"cankles". His swelling isn't as bad now that he's on a stricter diet. Poor guy will be glad to have a new liver so he can eat food he likes again! By the way, it isn't the type of food he ate that diseased his liver. He's not a drinker either. I honestly don't know what caused it. I don't know if the doctors do yet.
