No one may know for sure, but I do think that my grandmothers death was a good one – she died today.
The more I think about it the more I believe it was a good death. She has been delusional for 3 years now, not able to carry on a conversation from one moment to the next. This whole time she has been suffering from what appears to be either TIA’s or small seizures constantly. You could be talking to her, see her face go blank, and she’d not be able to remember what you were talking about. Sometimes the only person she could remember was my father, everyone else was a stranger to her.
More recently she slipped into a semi comatose state – She rarely woke up. The doctors were having a very difficult time controling the level of her medication. About one week ago she stopped taking anything orally, and per her wishes we did not have a feeding tube put in. One week later she died
I feel it was a good death, it was her time to go, and she had lived a good life.
