Round five: Everything is recyclable – TOI Blogs

During the course of her revival, her towering spirit, encaged in a frail body could not fight and eventually she gave in. It appears that during the surgery, her diaphragm may have got punctured. She developed septicemia, pneumonia, that deteriorated into acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and brain stroke.How did it happen, especially to a person who was the fittest amongst us all; who was the anchor and strength of our family; who was deeply loved and respected by whoever she came in contact with – we have absolutely no clue, only a few guesses.While she fought for her life, I wrote to the World ARDS Foundation (ardsusa@aol.com) in sheer desperation, whose president, Eileen Rubin (ardsusa@aol.com) was a survivor and had been on both sides of the bed to come back and devote the rest of her life, helping other ARDS patients. She explained that the Foundation does not offer legal advice (as it varies from one country’s jurisdiction to another) but they can initiate group prayers for my mom.
