Nicci's story begins last Monday, November 19, her 43rd birthday. She and Tim had a big week planned with her birthday, Thanksgiving and a remodeling project at Tonic. She had some pain Monday, but worked through it until last Friday. She became jaundiced, the pain unmanageable. Tim took her to St. Mary's ER. By Saturday evening, she is in liver failure in the ICU on life support.
