Mom has gone home to God

Mother passed away at around 11 last night.

I went to see her yesterday morning and she was not breathing well. After my conversation with the doctor on Wednesday afternoon, I had thought things were going well and she would be going home on Friday. The nurses called respiratory and they gave her a breathing treatment and said she had an anxiety attack.They gave her some xanex. Dad called and said he was there and she was resting comfortably.

A few minutes later, the nurse called and said I needed to come. She slipped into a coma and was unresponsive. She fought hard, but her lungs were too damaged and her heart was too weak. She went very quietly in her sleep with her friends and family at her bedside.

No word on arrangements yet.
