What can I expect from my 15 year Shitzu who is blind, deft and with only one kidney?

Lately my shitzu don't move much. She lost most of her legs muscles and I can touch every bone on her spine. She can stay on one spot for a long time without moving. Most of the time her head is down. She looks sad. She don't cry so I don't think she is in pain. She is eating and using the bathroom regularly. Even she have her accidents out of the pads but she always try. She lost a kidney few years ago, so we she only eats special food. I am so worry to come home one day I find out she is gone. Is there any signs to know when her time is coming close to leave us?

You may want to give your Shih Tzu organic virgin coconut oil, a teaspoon a day, to improve her her health. 15 is an older dog but they can live even longer.
