Hello friends and family! I started this website to try and keep everyone up to date as possible on Steve's health situation. Please feel free to contact me or post on here with questions or concerns...For those that need to be brought up to date,: Steve has been fighting bacterial liver cirrohsis for a very long time. Unfortuately, because of the liver not functioning the way it should, he had also developed an infection on his heart valve, due to the bacteria. Because of multiple system issues, valve replacement has been ruled out as an option, because it would be almost certain death on the table. Antibiotics to combat the bacteria in his system has proven unsuccesful as well. Our latest battle was a stroke he suffered late April, and that has left him with difficulty communicating.
At this time, the medical teams have determined we are out of options. He is now home on hospice, and we are trying to help him remain comfortable and happy, filling as much time as possible with friends and family and love
