Momma's new normal takes her closer to her happiest home. Please pray that she suffers as little as possible before she crosses over. Momma doesn't open her eyes anymore, but she is aware of conversations around her.
It occurs to me that Jesus died by suffocation. That's what the crucifixion was, it was death by suffocation. I don't remember the science behind it, but it was something like you stay up on your feet to breathe, then rest by relaxing but not too long because you won't be able to breathe, so you hoist yourself up again to take another breath. and you keep this up long as possible before you have no strength to do so anymore.
Mom has been trying to breathe quite a bit, even with 100% oxygen, and ambo bagging and suctioning complicated by throat lumps and diabetes and emphysema and Alzheimer's. It all ends up in the same place anyway, death, Heaven. I think death would be quite worthless if we didn't have Heaven to look forward to afterwards.
