Healthy Ideas Question by SizzleFace: How long left to live with hematoma of the brain? My mum is in Ireland with my granddad who had not been feeling well for the past week (disorientated/short of breath). I got a call from her today saying that he will never make it back to his house as he has a blood clot in his brain (hematoma) & that she doesn’t expect him to live for much longer. (Also his heart has been causing him trouble as well as the doctors want to fit him with a pace maker)…I know absolutely nothing about any such disease/illness so I was wondering whether any of you could enlighten me; do you know how long he could have left? He is in his early eighties if that helps. I know this maybe a ‘how long is a piece of string?’ style question but I’m just curious.

Any supporters can generate limitless universal or devotion in their hearts and the wish for the dying person to be released from suffering with this love or 1/2
