Update: FIL's funeral was earlier this week. He wasn't in the nursing home long enough to reach the medical-insurance-to-Medicaid transition point, so the argument whether to pay using his assets or Medicaid became moot.

SIL went forward with the house purchase, in her own name (DH not on title). So the estate is now in the condo and the house, with maybe a little bit of cash after paying funeral expenses. SIL's son has moved into the house, and a tenant is scheduled to move into the condo later this summer. There may be some hospital or nursing home bills which insurance didn't cover, which the estate is now responsible for. Not sure what SIL will do about that if the cash is insufficient, just glad it's not my problem.
