My 51 year old brother has been in the hospital for one week with liver failure and kidney failure due to alcoholism. The doctors are trying dialysis and have drained his abdomen twice. Yesterday the doctor said it was not good to drain all of the fluid off and, if needed, they could drain of a little fluid to allow for comfort. No one will give a prognosis other than to say it will be a rough road no matter which way his condition goes.

Does anyone have any experience with both organs shut down?
