I watch my Mom in her sleep and she quits breathing for about 30 seconds, then gasps and takes about 4 deep hard breaths. I keep wondering is this it? Then she will breathe normally again. This morning at 2am, I heard this moan and it was constant; I tried to wake her to see what was wrong and she wouldn't respond. I took her blood pressure and it was 145/115. Again, Is this IT? Finally she stopped and began breathing normally again, B/P went down. This is a constant stressful thing to witness so soon after watching my Dad pass away. I truly hate this part of life.
