Hello, Beachygirl, and welcome to the forum. I am so sorry your mother is so ill. She certainly has had a lot to deal with. The diabetes makes the liver disease even more difficult to handle.
So many people who come here want to know how long they or their loved ones have left. That is something that is impossible to predict, as each person is an individual. Liver disease is different in everyone. Some people just give up, which I think affects their ability to cope and hang in there. Your mother seems to want to live a little longer, which is a positive thing.
The best thing you can do is read our educational threads on ESLD and Death and Dying, as well as posts of others. That will give you a better idea of what to expect.
