my grandma was named as part of her friend's estate and wants to know how long after probate she will wait to receive her inheritance?

Question Details: We are in the state of Nebraska. My grandma is near death herself, and is in hospice. She was hoping to use this inheritance to pay for her medical bills. The friend's nephew and executor is dragging his feet, though the will has been through probate. Is there a time limit on how long he can drag his feet and if my grandma dies in the meantime, will her inheritance go back to the friend's nephew?
