She had taken a turn for the worse 2 weeks ago.Fall, infection, surgery on infected foot,ventilator, feeding tube. cardiac issues,,,,,all in a matter of days.We stood vigil at her bedside all day yesterday, I could not sleep and got out of bed at 1am, smoked a cig, then called hospital to check on her. It was 1:08 am.They were getting ready to call us, and were quite surprised that I called at that time. I went and spent 6 hours, just sitting with her.Just got home. Waiting for brothers to wake up and get the ball rolling on arrangements. BTW......it's my Birthday. I wish she could have waited a day or two more. Sad, relieved,and very tired. Thanks for being here for me these 3 years. Would not have made it without my AC family. Love you guys.
