My mommy Susan
My mom passed away unexpectedly 3 weeks ago. I had gotten home from school at 1 pm and called her. We talked about my day, her day, my brother, and my daughter's birthday party 2 weeks away. While we were talking about the present she wanted to get her she went quiet. She just stopped talking. I started yelling into the phone and knew something was wrong. I jumped in my car and called 911 as I did. I live less than 5 minutes and beat the paramedics there. With the help of the 911 operator I started chest compressions until the paramedics got there and took over. They were with her in the house for another 15-20 minutes. When they brought her out in the stretcher I asked if they were able to get her breathing again and they said, not yet. I knew then. The ambulance brought her to the hospital and when I got there with my brother they brought us back to the family room with the Chaplin. After 5 minutes the ER doctor came in to say they did everything they could but were unable to revive her. We got to say goodbye in a room right next to the family room, where they brought her. I then had to pick a funeral home and answer questions about organ donation and religious preferences. From the hospital my brother and I had to tell my grandmother. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. I then had to tell my 8 year old daughter that grandma died. Three weeks later it still doesn't seem real. I miss her and love her so much!
