She's Gone.......

I just wanted to let you know the my mother-in-law, Laura, passed away Saturday evening, at 7:00pm, from lung cancer.  We only found out she had lung cancer about five weeks ago, after we had to rush her to te ER for shortness of breath.  Several days and diagnostic tests later we were told that she had a large cancerous mass in her right lung.  She was sent home from the hospital two weeks ago Friday with hospice care.  A week ago she quickly declined and her kidneys began to shut down Sunday.  The rest of the week was pretty scary and heartwrenching to watch.  She gasped for breath all week long and she finally took her last one tonight.  Mike and I were at her bedside and she quickly smiled and then she was gone.  I am glad she is out of pain and in a better place.  Thanks so much for all of your warm thoughts, messages, comments and prayers.
