It is beyond repair. They've given her till Thanksgiving with a miracle Christmas. I was a 10 out of 10 for bone marrow transplant that she did not need. so I offered a piece of my liver as a living donor but her platelets are between 13 and 45 and she would bleed to death before she could have the operation.

@justmonica, Welcome. I am sorry to read about what your sister is going thru. She is so fortunate that you are beside her and that you are supporting with your interest and your offer to donate a piece of your liver with her. You might not feel like it currently, but you are an inspiration and a blessing for her.
I am 71, and I had a transplant at age 60. Transplant surgery is a very complicated process and liver transplant is a difficult surgery. My liver disease developed to endstage, and the issues that you are experiencing were very real to me. Unfortunately, she has age and the bleeding working against her. It sounds to me that you have already consulted with liver experts about this. Is there any chance that a 2nd opinion is possible to determine whether the liver damage is, in fact, beyond repair?
How is she handling this prognosis? How about you?
