At first, I thought that he should meet her because she was my first girlfriend and he was my best friend. When I took Celio to Estela's house, he was shocked by her beauty. The next day, he go to her house without telling me about it. He was courting my ex-girlfriend for a couple of days. I did not know about this until I came to visit her, and she told me that my friend had been visiting her everyday.
She was a teenage girl who drank gin-and-tonics and swallowed tranquilizers. Soon after, she lapsed into a coma. The doctors believed her brain damage was caused by the lack of oxygen and that it was irreversible; however, they could not give the exact reason she stopped breathing. After placing her on a respirator, she moved into a “fetal position,” with her arms and legs drawn underneath her tightly. Because of this, her family hoped she would come out of the coma, but the brain damage simple progressed and they lost hope after a few weeks.
However one of the sister, the little one, didn’t have to wonder much longer, she wasn’t shot, but she suffered from influenza. "I will keep you alive Lydia, I can't lose you, we die together, and we live together, I won't let death come to you" Anna, who is now a young lady, said to her little dying sister Lydia. Lydia found comfort about the thought of death, however the thought of Anna being alone crushed her, and she needed to make sure she will be alright. The morning came, and Anna decided to knock the doors of the doctors, hoping one day someone will pity her and check up on her sister. Anna knew that her sister could recover, that’s what the words on the street said, and they said the best doctor that could c... ... middle of paper ... ...away to her shack, holding the briefcase so tightly to her chest, but she wasn’t prepared to see what was coming.
I had been best friends with Tiffanie during elementary school. We had lost touch in middle school, but our friendship never ended. She had her ups and downs during her illness, but I never expected her cancer to be fatal. I was told at the beginning of December that the doctors didn’t expect her to live until Christmas. Because she was in my grade, my class sent cards to her.
She didn’t get a chance to have a surgery, or any other form of assistance to help her live longer. She died in her sleep of emphysema. This hit my mom very hard as she was close to my grandma. Her death led my mom to attempt to quit smoking several times, all failures. I couldn’t understand why it was so difficult.
When she was awake she began to beg us to let her die, let her go and be in peace. My sister and I both had medical power of attorney and any decisions made about my mom medically had to be done by one of us. My sister, who was five years older, would disappear each time the doctor came in because she just could not face him and what he was going to tell
Though they were able to revive her, doctors informed the family that Natalie would not live; she was deaf, blind, unable to move and ultimately brain dead from being withdrawn from oxygen for as long as she had been. While Natalie remained immobile and dead to the world, her parents begged the physicians to euthanize their child. However, currently in the state of Texas, euthanziation is illegal and the hospital’s ethics committee would not allow it. The only method they allowed that they considered humane, was to withhold both nutrition and hydration from Natalie. While it’s always traumatic for any parent to watch their child die, the Newton’s looked on as it took nine full days for Natalie to finally pass away from lack of nutrition.
I had the crazy notion that maybe this would be a perfect movie for me to see with my two stepdaughters, Danielle and Nicole over the Christmas break from school. Both resisted, and I recall that I never did see the movie in the theaters. I ended up renting it and watching it alone on VHS several months later. Stepmom is the story about the rocky relationship between Jackie (biological mom) and Isabel (soon-to-be stepmother). In the opening scene, Jackie,
"It shouldn't lots of people have to have oxygen" "She left it on when I went to visit her the other day, that proves that she's really not feeling very well at all." Another time I was told straight out, "Honey, Aunt Beth doesn't feel well, I don't know if she'll ever get better." This statement was wrong I was sure, she was my Aunt Beth and she would get well. I would look at her sometimes, trying to see why everyone thought she was unwell. She looked like she always had; maybe her back was a little more crooked she had Scoliosis.
