She's just .. gone. She went in for a routine blood test - said she felt woozy - got rushed to ER and hooked to all sorts of things.. her mom said it'll be OK , I'm here, I love you ... and SIL's heart stopped. They tried for over an hour and she never came back She was 31... married 4 years ... now she's just gone...

I'm so sorry.

So sorry for your family's sudden tragic loss. My own family has lost someone suddenly like that and I know how hard it can be to come to terms with. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you all so much ... things are moving fast her wake is tomorrow and her funeral on saturday ( it was that or wait out the long weekend) She had congenital heart defects but she had been doing fine - done so much to keep herslef here... noone could have seen it coming . Her cardiologist of 20 years rushed to the hospital to try and help - he ended up calling the last code... and then breaking down...
