Sleep Finally

One of the common symptoms is sever fatigue, insommnia and change of sleep patterns. A lot of patients with cirrhosis have trouble sleeping at night but sleep off and on or all day depending on how sick they are.

Before the hospital visit my head could hardly stay upright at around 4pm. Literally. Very weird and I there was nothing I could do about it but lay down.

Lately and for a long time I have had night sweats and they aren't hormone related except that your liver controls, like a lot of other things, your hormones. That and being on diaretics that keep me constantly peeing wake me up frequently at night.

Well, last night I slept like a baby, no sweats, not to many times on the potty and it was great! Not only that but I slept until 11AM... Oh, JOY! I just felt like my body finally relaxed and said PHEW! I had been running pretty hard the past couple of days...up at 6am, out of the house by 8 and not home until 6 or 7. Those are long days for me right now. So I enjoyed the catch up.

Is anyone else out there keeping a blog? I have some questions for you if you are.

Thank you guys for all the great comments and congratulations! Yes, you can congratulate me now.....LOL
