My friends husband has been hospitalized for the last 7 days. His liver is swollen, his pancreas and blood are bad. She said his white cell count is low. She told me that he drinks a lot. I'm assuming that he is alcoholic. He is only 36 years old. She doesn't sound very hopeful at the moment and I am having a hard time getting her on the phone--I'm sure she's ashamed and beside herself. I don't want to press for questions, but how bad do you think things are at this point? Do you think he might die? Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.I'm not really sure, if you had more details it would be easier to help you. The with cell count is not a good sing. can you provide more details about his condition?
