At the end of March 2019 I received a call that my baby sister and only sister, was being rushed to the ER as she was showing “stoke” like symptoms. I arrived at the ER soon after to see her lying in a hospital bed. She was coherent but unable to speak. When I walked into the room she started to cry. This still haunts me bc I wonder what was going through her mind. I made a smart remark to her an she gave me the middle finger. That is how we showed love... that was the last communication I had with her. She was transported to bigger hospital n placed in NEURO ICU. This hospital was over an hour away from where we lived so by the time I got to her the doctors were evaluating her. They placed her in a medically induced coma for they had no idea what was wrong. They did scans and tests and spinal taps for days. I was adamant this all had something to do with a spider bite she got about a month prior. I had pics of the bite on my phone along with dates. The drs refused to listen to me, refused to test the bite area, which was still there with a black scab the size of a quarter. After 2 days they came n said she had bacterial meningitis but they could not pinpoint a source. They told us they expected her to make a full recovery. She was a 31 year old RN and very healthy. After being in the ICU 7 days she had a pon stroke, which is a stroke in the brain stem. We were told she probably wouldn’t live and if she did, the most she would ever be able to do is move her eyes, and that was being optimistic. They pushed for us to take her off the life support, they said once life support was off she wouldn’t live more than a few hours. Her husband and myself had to make that decision. After 4 very trying days we opted to let her go. She lived for another 9 days. 27 days I drove that dreadful route to be with her from morning till night. Each day watching her deteriorate a little more. She left behind a 17 year old daughter, a 7 year old son, lots of friends and family who loved her deeply... and me .
