With such a condition for so long time the doctor has to explain the prognosis to relatives.if she had multiple infarcts in brain the chances of recovery r less also her diabetes n BP worsen the prognosis.but if she is breathing on her own without ventilatory support it is worth giving her chance to recover.plz understand that the treating doctor will b the best person to judge her prognosis .hope i cud help
