I have no fricken' idea.......

I would like to share a story about how Ruth died. She was a healthy older woman that was going into the hospital for an elective knee surgery. All seemed in order....until, she went into the operating room and he began to cut. Long surgery and story short, the surgeon severed a large artery in her leg but didn't catch it (not sure how you miss a spurting fountain like that) three days went by and dispite Ruth expressing pain and strange "feelings" in her body, as well as her family (me being such) asking for her to be checked again, the requests went unanswered for three days. At that point, they found the artery situation, tried to do emergency surgery to rectify it, to no avail. They came back and said that blood flow was not present and that they would have to amputate her leg immediately. Before they could prep her to do so, she developed multiple blood clots in her heart, lungs, etc. making the amputation a mute point. She proceeded to suffer for another few days with a dead leg and her lungs slowly filling with fluid, drowning from the inside out. Surrounded by her family (me being such again) held her as she let go and passed away. I went to Iowa to love and hug my Niece and Nephew for a day and a half, then came back and had a reviewal and funeral for my step-grammie. Surreal several days. And feeling alone in the world. I have questions, questions, and more questions about life. The one thing I came to in thinking about what had happened, and the fact that the family and friends talked endlessly about the tragedy that had happened, the unneccessary death of Ruth......

All this information was shared to make a point. I just shared the death of Ruth, and not a second of it matters.

Now I would like to share the story of her life..........

How about you? What would you like people to talk about when you leave this place? What would you have wanted to experience? Well, GO GET IT! You too Andrea, just cuz your the writer of this doesn't mean you are exempt. Close your eyes and jump!
