Death becomes more complicated

I received a call today from Sherise’s grandmother. She told me that the decision of whether or not to take Sherise’s mother off of life support falls to the oldest (adult) child of the patient. So the doctors will leave her plugged into the machines for up to a week before they’ll consider looking to the younger children (22 and 11, I believe) and the mother.

We still haven’t heard anything from Sherise. Nobody knows where she is or how to contact her. So this ordeal has become even messier.

It seems odd to be writing about this. I don’t know what else to do. It’s frustrating to see it happening from my perspective and I can only imagine it is even more frustrating and painful for members of her family who want closure.

This entry just wants it to be over.

    I knew Amy for 4 years and knew her to be one of the sweetest, warmest, kindest person in the world. She was close to God and I have no doubt that she is with him now. I knew her to be a strong woman that expected a lot of her kids, I don’t know Sheri very well but I know that Micah and Jordan are two of the sweetest people, due in great part to her. I feel sorry for her grandson, and the fact he didn’t get to meet her, or taste her excellent food, or play her favorite board games with her. She really was an amazing lady that will always have a place in my heart.
