Awww, he is beautiful! He'll do just fine, Daisy, with your good diet and care and any other species of amazon would work as a companion (they all like each other).
As to liver damage, I have several birds that came to me in real bad shape and the trick is to give them aloe vera juice (from inner filet, not the whole leaf), milk thistle and dandelion root non-alcoholic liquid extract in their water as well as capsules in their soft food along with artichoke extract, vit B6, biotin, SamE (or methionine if you find the SamE too expensive) and lots of fruits high in vit C. Once the bile acids leves go back to a normal range, just continue with the milk thistle, dandelion root and SamE or methionine. I have a 21 year old cockatiel hen that came to me in Aug/2012 and which the avian vet told me to put down because she wasn't going to last two months with her advanced liver and kidney damage. Well, she did not only not die, she got better and she just finished laying a clutch of four perfect eggs!
