Dying Is Horrifying

Dying Is Horrifying

Has been sad to me;
Dying is horrifying;
Will never forget.

My wife Jill is in intensive care right now
under sedation. Sunday morning she had
shortness of breath. An aide car came out 
and gave her oxygen and she started to
get better. They said to take her to the
Emergency Room at Novant Hospital in
Bolivia, NC. She was admitted to stay
overnight for a check up. The next day 
in the morning she received a call from
Stephanie Lynott then was visited by
the Jones's who had dropped by. She
received an email on her cell phone
of the choir singing Sunday on January
27, 2019 at St. James Episcopal. At
around noon yesterday she had more 
severe breathing problems. They had
diagnosed her as having Pneumonia
and fluid on the lungs. The put her
on a ventilator but that did not solve
the problem. She is now in ICU and
they have put a trachea in her throat
and inserted some other things in her
throat. Needless to say, I am scared
as hell and have been crying and
really upset. She is under sedation
right now and won't be coming out 
of it until about eight am. I cried 
myself to sleep at around nine last
night. I awoke at midnight thinking
that I was hearing Jill calling me.
Shawn just had his 50th Birthday
on January 24th. I am afraid to call
him. I am driving over at eight AM
to see her again. She is supposed 
to start coming out of it by then
and I should be able to talk to her
hopefully. This is the latest and will
keep you updated. Dr. Doran is
her doctor. There is a Doran Garage
in Shallotte, NC but she is not related
and is here from New York State. 
I still am afraid to call Shawn.

James, if you have not, make an effort to call Shawn. As I understand, Jill is his mother and therefore he has a right to know. God Bless You and may the Lord give you the needed strength.

Did Tuesday morning after I learned more and have called him every morning. He does deserve to know. Took her home at 5 PM on the first. Halleluiah.
