Love him: Cirrhosis often regresses at least partially when the cause is found and removed / treated. Maybe he'll be a candidate for a transplant. I recommend, above all, enjoying the time you have together -- he may well have been granted a reprieve from what would have been certain death, and i'm happy for you both.

Progressive disease: Can not be reversed but can hold on by what he is doing plus avoiding alcohol & hepato toxic drugs ( including illegal ones ).
