My nephew found his mom, my sister, in her house about 3:15 yesterday, she had passed away, only 54 yrs old. It was hard with my dad passing in Dec 2012, but he was almost 83 and had been sick for a few years and we were able to grasp he was dying, this is just a kick in the nuts. She left a daughter, 2 sons and 3 grand babies, our mom, and my 3 other sisters and me along with inlaws and many nieces and nephews.
My sister had some serious issues, obesity, severe diabetes ( 300 to 40's in just a couple hours), auto-immune disease, kidney issues, but had seen a new doctor and was getting better. My nephew went to pick her up for a doc's appoinment, she didn't answer. He had to kick in the back door and found her lying between the kitchen and dining room, almost like she had just laid down and went to sleep. My nephew is a paramedic, he said it didn't look like she had a heart attack. We think she felt her sugar going low and tried to get to kitchen for food, then maybe sat down and then laid down and went into diabetic comma then eventual heart stoppage.
Just numb this morning, still in shock like it's all a day dream. None of us can wrap our heads around it.
Our poor 81yr old mom is a wreck.
