How to tell if your patient will die
Posted on

I just visited my last grandmother in the hospital.
Like me, she didn’t eat vegetables and drank Coke until 2015. She is 93 years old.
Last March 4 at 4 AM, she went into cardiac arrest. It was a First Saturday.
No family was around to give consent, so the hospital staff automatically resuscitated her.
She is now brain dead.
As a devotee of Our Lady, I know she would have liked to have passed on a First Saturday, as I would too.
I’m glad I was able to hold her hand, kiss her head, and thank her.
It won’t be long now….

Many years ago I found this video which might be helpful to those watching over a loved one in the hospital.
I think it’s good to know when it’s time to call family and friends to come over and say goodbye.
I’m reposting this for my cousin Jay who is watching over Lola Liddy at the hospital.
This video will give you a clue if your patient is about to die.

    just a thought…

    right now it may be easy for us to say that, when i am about to go let me go, don’t wait any further i will hate the pain, BUT when that moment comes, when we are there on the table and our soul is now floating in mid air as your loved ones prays so hard to keep our heart beating, as they are weep in tears asking just for a moment before you go, and your husband/wife or kids begs to have just one hug before you leave, that will certainly break your heart, and you have to bargain with st peter for just a second…

  • Ako naniniwala sa “sundo”. Pag malapit na mamatay ang isang tao, nakikita na n’ya yung mga relatives n’ya na nauna nang namatay sa kanya.

    Me too. My father kept telling my little sister that his brother, mother and a close friend/neighbor is visiting in the hospital. All three were dead already. He died days later.

    hi chuvaness..i have been a fan of your blog for so long and..i find it kinda weird that a woman like you who almost has everything in life is googling  about morbid things like death..and i find it so strange because..i thought only  women like me who have  nothing to live for  would find the subject of death interesting..im not sick or anything but i have lost my appetite for life…i will not in anyway commit suicide because i believe in God but…im just kinda waiting for it to finaly find some rest from this weary life…in the meantime im trying to live my life the best i can. while waiting for it..im not quite old so this can be a long and weary journey

  • After our late night convo the other day that led us to this ^^^ topic, i tried to look it up on You Tube. I found it, but didn’t watch it. It made me realize that if I encounter someone who’s showing signs that he/she is about to die, parang di ko yata kakayanin. Ignorance is bliss na lang….:-)
