    That is terrible. Were you close to her? What a nice long life she lived, it's so sad it ended that way.

    In the US people can do paperwork so that at a certain point dr's aren't allowed to resucitate. It can be helpful in old age or for younger, say if you no longer have brain functioning. Sadly it's something we all should talk about and put in writing. There was a huge lawsuit here a few years ago that brought it to many people's attention.

    :hug: hun, unfortunatly cpr is not very nice at all. the paramedics have to try and resuciatate everyone though.

    just think the woman lived to a wonderful age and had someone with her at the end. im sure she really appreciated that and will be looking down on you and giving you a helping hand.
