It was a sad evening in my house last night and promises to be an even sadder day today. One of my husband's cousins will probably pass away today. She is a young woman, just in her mid-30's. Two days ago, she had a procedure done to remove/correct (not sure how they do it), some vericose veins. Yesterday she suffered a pulmonary embolism and collapsed in her home. Her two daughters, ages 11 and 13, found her on the floor and called 911. They were able to restart her heart and transport her to the local ER. She has not woken up and appears to have no brain activity. Her husband has signed a DNR and she is not expected to live past the next 24hrs. Her daughters are from her first marriage, so her current husband will not only lose his wife, but the two girls he has been helping to care for for the past couple of years since they will be going to live with their father. Just shows you how quickly things can change in your life. So hug your kids, your parents, give loved friends and family a call to let them know how much they mean to you.
