Unhappy Help me! Please give me some answers...

Hi! I have a 73 yr old mom that's been diagnosed w heart failure and today has been admitted to the hospital cuz she's not been eating along w a new diagnosis of kidney failure. Her dr is sure her kidneys are going to shut down. She has edema and her fluid is clearing out of her lungs. She's also diabetic w high sugar levels all the time w no apparent reason for it... She don't eat high sugar foods in the past week, actually she hasn't barely eaten at all. Is this the end? A sure sign of the inevitable? Or does she have more time? She has not even started dialysis yet.
