    Thank you all! I'm home, but husband is still there. Aunt is on a morphine drip and is being kept comfortable. She had been having pain in her stomach for a couple of months. She went to the ER a few weeks ago and after a few days on IV and a few tests, they sent her home. Yesterday, after a couple of tests came back, doctor called and told her she needed to go to the ER. He performed surgery on her today. Turns out, she had too much plaque build up in her mesenteric arteries and it cut the blood supply off to her bowels, causing gangrenous bowel.

    I'm so angy I could spit. This is something that should have been caught when she was in the hospital two weeks ago. She's been in pain for months.

    Anyway, I need to put my anger aside right now and pray that she goes peacefully. She just turned 60. Way too young.
