OT, I have such a heavy heart today. I posted a couple of weeks ago about my friend that her son had tylenol toxicity. His kidneys and liver were failing. He has decided that he just wants to go home now. They have taken him to my friend(his Mom and Dads) house on hospice care. It is a matter of days or maybe weeks at this point. I can only just imagine the heart ache and sadness that my friend and her family are going thru right now.

Is this the person that took the tylenol all the time for pain, more than he should have? I think I remember your post. So sorry to hear of this sad turn. Sending cyber hugs your way for all.

This is so sad. Their family are in my prayer. Thank you char for sharing this warning. I have to share this with my DH which sometimes take strong doses of tylenol.

Hi Char just seeing this post. So sorry to hear that. I graduated from nursing school last year and they really stress the importance of educating people on over the counter med toxicity. I will send a prayer up. Also I am seeing you are from Crandall. I live in Kaufman! Small world.

LED87,yes, it is a small world we live in. I worked in Kaufman for about 15 years in the Kaufman clinic for Dr. Fortner. He is the mayor now. My husband was born and raised in Kaufman.We moved to Rockwall about 15 years ago. I don't know what possessed Jerry to take so many tylenol. His Mom (my good friend) is a RN herself. I am sure she had stressed thru the years the dangers of this drug if not taken according to directions.Thank you everyone for the prayers and kind thoughts.
