Natty, I agree. It sounds like hepatorenal syndrome. Hopefully, she is in the hospital.
From what I've heard, people can hear when they're in a coma, but other sensation shuts down. Given that she's been having "spells" I think this is how she will go.
Please let us know what is happening. Our thoughts are with you and your b.f.
