    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.

    they have no idea why this happened either he was a very healthy avtive man and i think he was only maybe in his mid 50's. i guess we will hopefully find out more he was working and started to feel like crap then it was all over within 20 min after he started feeling crappy

    James, Im very sorry for your loss! I know how tough it is to lose someone you love. I hope you don't continue to hold it against yourself that you were busy when it happened. You couldnt have anticipated this and I know that you would have been there for him if you could have. Please take care of yourself and be with your family during this tough time!

    I somehow missed this thread. James, I'm sorry for your loss, and the loss to your aunt. Glad to know you made it there in time to pay your respects before they took him off support, I'm sure that meant alot to both yourself and your aunt.
