Had a fall in oldage, been on life ?support. What are the chances of surviving?

What are the chances of my Grand mother surviving? She is now on life support, and the reason for this is because she had fallen and no one was able to get inside her house for a few days, so she was laying on her floor for a few days. So what are the chances of her surviving. Doctors gave us an option to pull the plug, but that is something we are not thinking of doing.
