On Tuesday, the 6th of January 2015, I received news that my mother had come down with a bad case of pneumonia and her health was progressively getting worse. Breathing, eating, and drinking became difficult for her without having coughing and choking episodes. Additionally, medical intervention was not alleviating her situation.
Her body, weak and frail for intravenous remedial treatment, continued building fluid in her lungs, making a dire situation even worse. With little left for doctors to do and not sure how much longer she had left under these circumstances, they advised family to come by her side ASAP and to expect the worse.
