I'm Aunt I think is either in her last days or last weeks of life. Her breathing is slowing, but the breaths are gasps. She is gurgling and having spastic movements. She is also not aware of what is going on.

Does this sound like days or weeks?

Is she drinking water or eating?  If she's not drinking any water, it will be days.  You can't survive very long without water.

Nothing

Today she grabbed the bed handle and said wait, wait, wait. She was coughing at the time. I don't know if its because she didn't want to move or was seeing something not there.

Days. Her hands and feet will begin to arch and clench, and you will know it is very soon. I'm sorry.
