Many times on MD I've noticed that people will share the type of "end" their mothers experienced. Many of you had moms that were in hospitals and needed assitance breathing etc., and will comment that your moms were unresponsive. For what it is worth, I can tell you that I have witnessed two "natural" deaths. The first was my grandmother in the mid 1980's. I helped my mother care for her. She was 95 years old. In the end she was unresponsive and slowly drifted away. My mom died the same way; she fell into a deep coma like sleep and became unresponsive. I don't know why I'm sharing this - I just thought that maybe those of you who had moms that died in the hospital would wonder if it were different if they were at home. Sorry if this topic seems morbid.
