Parisdr, PG has bumped a bunch of educational threads to the top. You might want to read over those to get a better idea of what to expect. I think the big question is whether your husband is still drinking and, if he's stopped, how long has it been since his last drink.
It really is a rollercoaster ride. Since liver disease is such an individual one, every patient is different. This makes it near impossible to predict how long a person has left or if he will make it to transplant.
Remember to take care of yourself during this trying time.
