R.I.P. Mom

It is my duty to inform everyone that my dear mother passed away last night (7/8/15, Wednesday) around 11:00 PM.

I left the house around 8:00 to return some videos and make another stop or two.  When I got back around 8:45 I discovered that Mom was sitting in her recliner (where I left her), but she had vomited over everything as was semi-conscious.  She told me she'd had a heart attack. I called 9-1-1 and the EMS team arrived promptly.  They worked on Mom for a while, started an IV and such, then loaded Mom onto a stretcher and took her to Flower Hospital ER.  Mom's heart stopped at the ER, and the Dr. at the ER (Dr. Wilson) managed to revive her.  This happened several times, then the doctor explained to me that the medication was keeping her heart beating, but each time it wore off her heart stopped.  The kindest thing to do was to stop medicating her.

So that's what happened.

Main Lady was with me, and we said good-bye to Mom.  I told Mom not to worry about me, that the Lord was looking after me and I'd be alright, and we'd see each other again in heaven.

I have a few phone calls to make today, but I'll be checking my email and blog as time and energy permit.
