My very healthy and active 92 year old mother fell one night going to the bathroom, broke her hip, had hip replacement surgery, recovered from anesthesia, and was ordered released from the hospital in all of three days. But going home was not meant to be. She could not urinate so they couldn’t release her. That night she developed pneumonia from aspiration, sending her body into a downward spiral. She then coded, was brought back, placed on a respirator, and was doing very well. The final blow were the gases that had developed in her bloodstream which caused her death.
My mother was a fighter. If anyone could have made it through all that, it would have been her. It was just her time. Her time to fold it all in. We never know what cards are going to be dealt our way, we just need to figure out what to do with our hands https://youtu.be/tnAHN1guHbs
