    I doubt there will be unless it's for the worse.

    She has Alzheimers and there is no cure for that. It only gets progressively worse until the person becomes wild animal-like in their behaviour. I used to work with Alzheimers patients from the very mild to the very extreme where it took 5 of us to get one patient washed and up into a chair in the morning.

    yeah, she won't get any better. she's also got parkinson's disease, and now has dementia. she's not going to recover from that. i don't know how much longer she will live from this diseease, but im sure after she goes there will be a huge GG marathon for her.

    I wish her the best too. I hate to see her go, but whenever she goes at least I will have good memories of her from the Golden Girls. Estelle Getty you are one great lady!
