Cirrhosis

My 83 year old mother was recently diagnosed with non-alcoholic cirrhosis.Already had ascites drained several times.She is on sirolactoneand Lasix now,which seem to be keeping that under control.She stays dehydrated,diarrhea constantly,weak,and now her kidney functions are worse.Her prognosis was 18 months in Sept 2012.My question is,"how much worse and how fast will it come.I am so worried about her suffering.She also has colon cancer but they are not concerned about it because it is in the early stage.Also a diabetic.How long can she survive like this? Thank you so much.Very worried daughter.
