Mr. Jenkins Update

December 13, 2009

A couple hundred dollars got us a general diagnosis of liver disease. His liver does not filter the toxins (notably ammonia)  from his body which disrupts his mental functions and makes him depressed. The only cure is surgery, which we can’t afford.

We were given the option of a treatment, however, which he is now on. He takes a pill and vitamin every day and has to have a special type of fancy food. We just started this treatment this morning and can already see a huge improvement, so I am hopeful.
