Actively dying usually means the patient is within 72 hrs (3 days) of passing on. Keep her comfortable, give morphine to ease the labored breathing and allow her to sleep. Loss of arm circumference indicates fluids are leaving the extremities. Skin becomes cool, heart rate drops, urine darkens. Call in your angels and ask for their guidance.

active dying is the death process beginning and not reversible. organs failing, toxins building in bloodstream, possibly kidneys shutting down. eating and drinking will cease, no food being processed, forcefeeding is detrimental. nutrition, hydration prolongs life / death, shouldnt be done. starvation / dehydration is expected , produces a mental euphoria making starve / dehydrate two of the most gentle ways to pass. phneumonia is believe it or not a trauma free death.
