Help climbing icon and living legend Jim Bridwell and family with the incadental expenses and treatment of hep c liver and kidney failure. A few months ago My father jim Bridwell started complaining of feeling bloated. Being the tough one he is didn't think much of it. But shortly after returning from a recent trip to Italy for an appearance at a film festival he really started to become extremely swollen to the point of ridiculousness. So I proceeded to take him to Eisenhower's emergency room they said see a primary care physician which he didn't have at that point. So we went home made the appointment. But his stomach kept getting bigger and bigger so two more trips to Eisenhower Medical Emergency Room still nothing has been done for him. At this point he was getting grossly bloated and in pain so I took him to Desert Regional where they immediately tapped and drained 3 and a half liters of fluid from his abdomen and he came home. A few days later waiting for the doctor's appointment he was extremely bloated again so I took him to his doctor's appointment where they proceeded to tell me he needed to go to the er so I took him to Desert regional again. Once there they drained another 7 plus liters of fluid and did a work up various tests to discern what was causing the ascites. Lo and behold he turns up to have Hep C, very common for his age group, my mom suspects he could have contracted from any number of his adventures but more likely than not it came from the tattoo he received from the Headhunter's during his cross navigation of Borneo back in the 80's when I was a kid.

Thank you everyone from both me and my mother. We can not express how grateful we are for not just the contributions but the moral and heartfelt love for my father and what he meant you mean to everyone in the climbing community. I know he would appreciate it. There will be a celebration of life in the place he loved most Yosemite in May the 19th of 2018 any and all are invited who have any appreciation for my father. He wouldn't want me to exclude anyone so come celebrate with us there's an eventpost on Facebook rsvp there so we have an idea of turn out to plan

Pop's just left his place in the ambulance. He started to hack up blood. I'm assuming he burst the equivalent af a varicose vein in his esophagus. Which we were told was immediate sign to call nine-one-one this is as the minute I will let you know as soon as we know more let's hope it's something minor
