Some of you may already know my mom passed away yesterday.
She had a cardiac arrest sometime Sunday night/Monday morning. When my step dad, Frank, woke up, he found her unresponsive and immediately called 911.
They got her heart beating again and had a machine breathing for her and waited. I arrived yesterday morning and the dr gave me the worst news I could've imagined. My mom was showing no brain activity and her organs were slowly failing. It was time to make a decision. We decided to do one more test on her brain to see if it would respond to any fluid intake, and it didn't. She was brain dead. We had no choice but to unhook her from the machines that were breathing for her and pumping her blood. Her family gathered around and the priest blessed her, and she died. She was only 51
It was emotional and hard and unimaginable. Now we have the business of the funeral. My mom didn't have any life insurance or any arrangements and out family is feeling the financial burden.
So I'm reaching out to our friends and family hoping to get some help. If you can't help financially just say a prayer for us please.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart
