In brief: Cannot say but

His continuation of his drinking will continue to shorten the time he has remaining.
...especially 'quality' time.

In brief: Liver troubles

It sounds like your dad really needs some help there.
If he has two tumors already, I hope the doctors following him have a plan. Obviously whatever your dad can do to help himself-- stop drinking-- would be opportune, although if he hasn't "seen the light" after these diagnoses, he may not be listening to anyone. Maybe it is time to have a talk about the "Big Picture"-hope his doc can b realistic
