well i watched my uncle die today. so here is the story. he had a heart atack and my aunt called 911 and the EMT's got him revived but when he got to the hospitial he had another heart atack and they could not get him to come around so they air liffted him here to billings and they tried an external pacemaker a ballon thing that was supost to stimulate the heart to start working again but none of it worked. the really crappy part was that i was in the middle of buying a van so i could not leave right away but i got to the hospitial just in time to go and give my final respects and be there with my two aunts and my mom before he passed. i was in the room when they turned the machines off. they were the only thing keeping his heart and breathing going as soon as they turned them off he was gone.
