My cousin who I grew up with, overdosed today on pills. Her dh found her not breathing but no one knows how long she was that way. They did manage to get her back but she still hasnt regained consciousness.<br><br>
She has a nearly 10 yo dd and almost 2yo ds.<br><br>
Please no matter your faith or beliefs send you thoughts/prayers that she recovers to raise her kids.

They have updated her condition from critical to stable. But she still has yet to wake up. They are transfering her to a larger hospital soon.

I havnt heard anything since the last update. I want to be there for her but she is a long way from me. I feel so helpless and I hate not being able to find things out.

I am so sorry! No matter her personal pain, she is loved and I hope that she can pull through this. I will be thinking of her and her family.

It was an intentional overdose. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> she had been out all night and came home and her dh and her got into an arguement and she said well I'll just end it then and went to the bathroom and took pills <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">:<br><br>
If she hadnt came back into the living room and lay down he wouldnt never have known anything was wrong.<br><br>
From what her dh says she started snoring and struggling to breath and when he tried to wake her she wouldnt wake up so he sat her up to help and she stopped breathing. He called 911 and when they got there she was blue.<br><br>
Still dont know how long she wasnt breathing and the Dr. wont know if there is going to be any brain damage until she wakes up.<br><br>
I wont know anything more until tomorrow sometime unless things get worse.<br><br>
Keep those prayer/thoughts coming I know they will make a difference.

Even though we only saw each other twice a year we where so close. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> We lost a lot of that closeness after she started working and couldnt come down but I still really love her and have worried about her for years now. I tried to talk to her a time or two about how she was choosing to live but she just started seeing me as yet another "adult" trying to rain on her parade. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

She is off the vent now but still in ICU and will be there for at least another 24 hours. She has roused a bit but her parents are not sure she recognized anyone.<br><br>
The EMT's worked with her for 15 minutes to get her breathing again so she was without oxygen for at least that long but probably longer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> no idea how long it took them to get there.<br><br>
So until she wakes up and is able to talk there is no way to now how much if any brain damage she suffered <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">:
