   The hep c itself won't make a difference. But why does she have cellulitis and staph pneumonia. Is her liver in such bad shape that she is having all these problems?
   Without more info I can just guess that her Liver may be in bad shape. How long has she had hep c, did she ever have a liver biopsy , was she ever treated for hep c in the past.

mrsa is a skin infection If the immune system can not fight it off, that can start very small looks like a bug bite, If not taken care it can be deadly,   I wish you both well, glad she is the hospital

If she is in the hospital, that is appropriate with the problems you describe. I hope she gets the care she needs there.
