The hemoptysis is due to congested pulmonary vasculature due to increased left atrial pressure backing up to the lungs.
Liver enlarged because she developed heart failure which can explain her wasting also.
Hoarseness of voice is due to impingement of the enlarged left atrium on the recurrent laryngeal nerve.
