I haven't been on the forum since early December. My wife Got sick back in Dec. spent 11 days in the hospital taking numerous test. Never did determine the actual problem. Sent to Rehab for 11 days then released to go home in January. Seemed to get somewhat better, regained some weight, but still not well. On March 18th she was supposed to go back to the hospital for some blood tests, but didn't feel well so cancelled the appointment on Wednesday, she still refused to go to the hospital. Later that day she had loose stool almost all day, on and off the toilet all afternoon. The final time was at around 3:30 A.M. when I helped her to bed. She wasn't in bed for 10 minutes and had difficult breathing. I called 911 and they responded and started CPR. She passed at 4:12 A.M. 3-21-2019, quietly in her sleep.

We were 37 days short of our 50th Anniversary. She was 62 days short of her 75th birthday. At least she didn't suffer and have to go back to the hospital for extended tests for who knows how long.
She is now at Peace.

    So sorry for your loss. Sincere condolences. 😥
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    My heart goes out to you and your family.
    Take comfort in the knowledge that she is in Grace. Her job here on Earth done and she was called home. Loved ones will always be missed but don't fret :'( ... I'm sure she wouldn't like that.

    But it has been a rough year for the forum family.
    Again, my heart goes out to you and yours.
