She started having difficulty breathing, swallowing, etc., but wasn't choking. Mom was totally non-verbal, by this point, just about one step above vegetative.

Anyway, they took her back to her room and called Medical, who put her on a respirator, but even with that her color went. They called my sister and said if we wanted to say our goodbyes to come, sis called me. We were all en route when she went.

She was there from June until yesterday. She should have been in managed care at least a couple of years prior but my sister kept on holding on trying to take care of her at home.

Anyway, here we are.

It was a formality, at any rate, as I said, she'd forgotten my sister and mostly forgotten me. A few weeks ago my grand-nephew was born to my oldest niece, they took him to see great grandma, she was unresponsive. Didn't even open her eyes.

So it goes.
