a young woman dies today
the woman who i wrote about yesterday, who had had eclamptic seizures and then was in a coma all day, she died today. this morning she was actually conscious for awhile, although disoriented. i was surprised; there seemed to be hope. but then, she fell into a coma again, and it was obvious that her whole body was shutting down. there was no urine output today (and only very bloody urine since yesterday), her lungs were totally congested today, and she went into agonal breathing. i stayed there as she was in the process of dying, but wasn't there the actual moment that she took her last breath. it is sad. she has 2 kids here. she was 29. this makes 3 women in the past month here who have died from eclampsia. maybe 5-6 in the past 5 months.
