My aunt passed away today.
Last night/Early this morning they did a MRI and found extensive bleeding of the brain and that the spinal cord was severly damaged. They said that she was a vegetable and that there was no hope or chance in her returning to us. Her living will stated that she didn't want to live if there was no hope for her (she's still in a coma and not responsive to talking or touching). So they gave her morphine and pulled the plug. She was still breathing on her own when they pulled the plug and I left not long after that. I couldn't handle the thought of her body fighting for life when it was so clear to look at her and see that she was gone (her tongue was limp and to the side, her head turned and at a slight down angle, no color to her skin).
It's so hard. She was my favorite aunt - my role model. She was one of the few good people in this world. Tomorrow will be her viewing, Saturday her funeral. She's going to be buried up at the graveyard next to my house - beside her exhusband (my uncle). At least I'll be able to walk up and visit as I feel the need to.
I really just dont understand why. It's so unfair.
