Elaine died of a massive heart attack on Saturday night, April 2, 2011 -right
in front of me sitting opposite her, but it was obvious she was gone.
She had always been in good health, so hadn't really seen a doctor since
perhaps 2008 -only this thursday night complaining about ill-feeling in
heart/esophagus area -two days til attack, and altho we always communicated
well about such things, we trusted each other to make our own decisions.
She decided saturday early evening to go to emergency, but wanted a small a
bowl of miso soup, so I made that for her -bean threads, little dried seaweed
and a beaten egg; it was while eating that sitting opposite her eating what
little was in left in the pot, I looked up and saw her slumped back into her
chair, head back, mouth open, arms hanging, eyes upward; I knew she was dead
-no breathing -no nothing. I immediately pulled her to the floor; gave her cpr
and called 911 -even think I broke two ribs, but there were only two or three
maybe four rasps. Ambulance arrived within a few minute -six fireman, and they
were fast, but only a few distant spikes on the ekg -and then complete
God, I miss a wonderful love and companion -excellent cook too, I could talk
her about anything
-degree in botany, worked in aerospace too -great sensitivities in the arts and
the humanities in general, and a voracious reader; she was at least half of me!
-god, I miss her!
She supported me in every way; I know nothing about where money comes
from or how it moves around -pensions, credit cards, debits, social security,
taxes whatever, but she actually understood what I was doing. -god, I
really miss her! The house, the yard, it's all her, not me; she's all over the place -completely
empty without her, yet I can't do anything here without running into her -
another bawl. -I really miss her.
[Son, Hector, arrived late Sunday Apr 3 -Felix, Wednesday Apr 6 -each staying
about 5 days. I had to write the above first chance I had, Monday, Apr 4;
neither of them has an input, consequently, but they have read it, and agree
completely -and it shows in their dispositions and interests too. Elaine was a
great mother even if she sometimes doubted what was best for any and all
-naturally but patiently. And we all kept in touch too, always knowing how
anyone else was doing; we will miss her.]
