Mr. H's maternal grandmother passed away yesterday, rather quickly and unexpectedly.
She had difficulty catching her breath on Tuesday and we thought that was a direct result of not doing her nebulizer 5 times daily and not getting any exercise. It could have been those things and maybe not. The EMS was called to check her vital and was declared, in good health.
The following day (Wednesday) they admitted her to the hospital for a follow-up because she still could get a deep breath. She was later diagnosed with a p.ulmonary e.mbolism, which is a blood clot in her lungs. I don't know if she knew she was going to die, or if she could even comprehend what was going on. She was on oxygen, M.orphine and A.tivan.
My MIL called me yesterday (Sunday) to tell me she didn't have much longer because the clot had moved and 15 minutes later she passed. It just happened so unexpectedly and we're still kind of shock.
Since the funeral home is backed up with customers (crazy!) my MIL can't meet with the director until tomorrow. The funeral will be sometime this week, but no earlier than Thursday. We'll be travelling 4 hours to get there. I should know more tomorrow afternoon, hopefully.
Though, I wasn't close to her, please keep Mr. H and his family in your thoughts.
She was with us for 88 years and will be missed.
