37265196_1552850667449057_r.jpegWe are hoping to raise enough to cover the cost of mom's hospice care, funeral costs and other medical expenses associated with her time in the hospital. We also hope to provide a memorial leaf at Ray Hickey Hospice House as well as a donation to the House itself in gratitude for the exceptional care she received in her last days and the care all of us were given in our grief.  All funds raised above our goal will be used to defray hospital costs incurred prior to hospice.

For those of you who don't know how we lost Mom:
On Tuesday, Feb. 4th Mom was admitted to the ICU at Peace Health in Vancouver, WA with with a septic infection. While in ICU they worked to eliminate the infection and bring her blood pressure and body temperature up to acceptable levels. Once stable, she was transferred to the Progressive Care floor a few days later. The first several days there her vitals remained stable, but she was having a hard time waking up and being responsive. She did respond to us from time to time and open her eyes to look at us, but only for very short times.  At this point we still thought she'd be coming home, but with some PT for recovery.  Unfortunately her system was compromised such that she contracted pneumonia and began having atrial fibrillations and brain seizures. Her condition worsened to the point that on Thursday, February 14th, the doctors concluded that her heart would not last much longer and determined that the seizures had done significant damage to her cognitive function. Friday, February 16th she was moved to Ray Hickey Hospice House. Occasional moments of opening her eyes, but the last significant engagement was when virtually the entire family (husband, kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids) were gathered together around her bedside on Sunday morning for a time of worship. She opened her eyes wide, smiled big and mouthed the words to some of her favorite hymns. Ray Hickey House took extraordinary care of her, and all the family that came and went over the next several days. She went to be with the Lord at 1:35am on Thursday, February 21st.

Fallbrook Memorial planned for Saturday, May 4th at 10am.  Riverview Church, 4980 Sweetgrass Ln, Bonsall, CA 92003.  Please consider giving to our fund in lieu of flowers.
