If a 65 year old male patient has diabetes, developed gangarene infection and had to have his leg amputated.  During his recovery he developed pnemonia (pneumonia) while in hospital and had to be put in intensive care unit on ventilator.  all antiobiotics given are bein rejected and he continuously developed bacteria bugs in the blood.  lately his left lung has collapsed and infection is complete on his left side (where the leg was amputated).  the right lung is only operating at 60% and the ventilator machine is constantly on 100%.  How long do you anticipate his survival would be?
