Victim of multiple strokes. Has UTI. Put a catheter. Survival rate?

My grandad is 78 years old and the victim of 6 major strokes. He has a foley which has caused a uti that put him in the hospital. While there we found out that the bottom half of his heart is dead and the part that is still working is only functioning at 20 %. They took him off his blood thinners for the next week so he can undergo surgery to put a catheter directly in his bladder . What kind of survival rate does he have?
