My grandma age 87 was recently in a rehab facility for 60 days and came home and within a few days was diagnosed with congestive heart failure on the left side. I always thought people died of that not really were diagnosed with it. She has swelling of her leg (it's the one she broke) and she has pneumonia (not sure if this is related or not or just due to a cold she had that never got better while in rehab untreated). The doctor didn't say it was deadly but the more I'm reading, the more people don't get better from it. They are treating her with water pills, muscinex, an antibiotic, and a wrap on her leg. Is this really going to be something she can sort of recover from or will this eventually be deadly? I'm just trying to get a feel for what to expect.
