Recovering alcoholic. Done CBC. Interpretation?

I am a recovering alcoholic with scary CBC numbers re: liver...can I hope for good news from latest CBC? First was done days after stopping drinking. It has been 115 days. Just took another and awaiting results. I am a 48-yr.-old mother of two with non-smoking/non-drinking/non-drugging lifestyle. Here are a few numbers: WBC was 3.5; RBC was 3.17; MCV was 114.0; MCH was 38.5; Platelet count was 80. My neutrophils# was 1.5; total protein was 5.9; serum albumin was 3.1; SGOT (AST) was 64; bilirubin total was 3.4 CH. I look forward to your reply.

thanks for writing in.
Your reports are not as yet within limits of normalcy. You will require supportive nutritional and liver care to improve your hematological parameters. You need to consult a gastroenterologist for further advice.
