My grandmother has had problems for years. Our family has "walked on eggshells" all this time because to cross her just made it worse. None of us realized that we could be seeing signs of Alzheimer's or some other problem. Anyway, she has recently been diagnosed with Organic Brain Syndrome. She also has kidney cancer which is contained in the left kidney and Congestive Heart Failure. She no longer recognizes anyone on a regular basis except my grandfather and her apetite has really decreased. I would like to have an idea of how much time we have left with her. She has always been difficult but she was always good to me and it is breaking my heart to see her like this. Please, can anyone give me some idea of how much time she may have left? Thanks!
