UPDATE!

A bit a good news. They did more tests, and determined her weak heart is due to lack of protein. They have her on a feeding tube and enriched it with more protein, so they said she is doing fine now. Good enough to where she will be moved out of Intensive care, and moved to the Rehab floor.

Terrible update...


















She'* not gonna make it. She apparently took a turn for the worse, she no longer can speak, let alone barely move. All she does is lay there and moan. My Dad and aunts signed the DNR paper, as the doctors stressed that if she suffered another stroke, she would be completely braindead. I cannot believe this is happening..... I simply cannot handle this at the time.... I am gonna end up going into a nervous breakdown.

Well.....














She'* gone. She passed away at 8:45am this morning, peacefully. They said she had stopped breathing, and they made an attempt to resuscitate her, and it was unsuccessful, as she was supposedly braindead. May she rest in peace, she is no longer in pain.

I am so sorry, I know how you feel. I was the same when my grandfather passed. Life goes on and that was the time she was chosen to go. Hope things get better though.

Thanks guys...

Sadly, it was inevitable. She was far too sick to even get better, so we depressingly waited for about a week and a half for her to pass. I'll tell you what though, she was a fighter. She has been through 2 heart attacks, congestive heart failure, irregular heart beat, 3 strokes, COPD, Emphysema, asthma, and many more things. She was actually a very healthy person my Dad said until about 1986 when she had her first heart attack, then after that she progressively got worse. She would smoke alot, but when my grandfather commited suicide in 1981, she became a heavy smoker and drank whiskey heavily. Heck, my Dad said she used to chase him down the street when he skipped school when she was 45!

And sadly....what caused all this?


Smoking. I am so glad I am not a smoker, such a terrible habit that leads to nothing but health problems and eventual death. She only drank from 81-86, then stopped.
