Just had to share with you all what I witnessed Thursday night. I had the day off and was sitting on my porch chatting with my mother on the phone. My neighbor, ( and friend since we were 12) went by and I mentally noted she was early getting home from work and continued chatting with my mother. A few minutes later an ambulance came driving up the road and pulled in her driveway. I started getting worried and tried to decide whether I should go over or not. I hung up with my mother and something propelled my legs across the road. In the meantime her daughter comes flying in the other neighbors driveway screaming and crying. I got to the door and saw my dear friend in hysterics sitting in a chair in her living room. (Her husband, who was only 53 had just come home that day from knee replacement surgery that was performed on monday, was a full code upstairs in his room.) (Appparently he wanted steak for dinner and my friend needed to run some other errands so , he had my friend help him to the spare room for a nap . He told her to go and he would be fine. So she left and ran her errands and returned approximately 1hour and 45minutes later. When Charlotte returned he was unresponsive and no pulse she could feel, and 911 was called) As the minutes ticked by I knew in my heart it was not a good outcome. Well the firemen came down and asked me to get her to another room and I did. We went out on the breezeway and she and I sat there together. When they wheeled my neighbor across the lawn I knew it was all over. They were ambuing him but not strong enough, and no cpr was being done. This was all a show for my friend, because they needed to take him to the hospital to be pronounced and felt my friend couldn't deal with the truth right then. The thing that has been bothering me ever since is that her husbands belly was as large as a women who was 9 months pregnant. So what do you think? When they intubated him, they got the tube down his esophogus instead of his trachea, or what? I know that Lenny was already dead I'm sure by the time she found him, that nothing could have been done to save him, but you er people, is that normal for his belly to be that large after trying to revive him? My poor friend, she is devistated,and I stayed with her til 4am friday morning. So I guess this is partly to just unload. They feel it was due to a blood clot...he was on coumadin...was still in the bag with his meds. So thanks for listening...calling hours are tomorrow, and the funeral is monday. Please say a prayer for Charlotte and her family...this is almost too much for them to bare.
