34 year old brother

My brother is 34 and has a very agressive strand of hep C. He has had hep C for about 13 years. He has become very sick in the past 3 or 4 months with ascites, ammonia in his blood causing confusion and irritability to say it midly.
The nursing staff has said that his health is declining rapidly and has about 2% liver function left. What can I expect in the very near future? Is there any one that can tell me about how much time. Mind you his heart and other organs are still pretty strong. I am just looking to talk to someone with some experience with this.
