My mom passed away on Monday @ 6am from complications resulting from vasculitis and a staph blood infection. She was a 30+ year breast cancer survivor.
4 out of 5 kids were by her bedside when the ventilator slowed down and her BP and heartrate declined. I have to believe she knew we were there, holding her hands, stroking her hair, telling her that it was OK, time to go see Dad, and tell him we said hi.
