We thought it would be nice to share this video that we created in remembrance of Mom at Thanksgiving with all the family & friends who prayed for her and visited her blog. We all miss her very much. Hope you enjoy all these special memories.

Hello, all! Below is a note that Bill wrote and asked that I post to the blog for everyone. Thanks….Tammy
To all our relatives, friends, Knights, and neighbors that were following Pat’s blog:

Mom lost her battle last night and she passed at 7:30pm. Dad, Terri, Vicki, Billy, Mike, and a priest were all by her side. The tentative arrangements are for a visitation at Oakey’s Funeral Home South, on Brambleton Avenue, on Sunday, January 22nd. On Monday, January 23rd, there will be a funeral mass held at Our Lady of Nazareth on Rt 419. Please note that these are tentative plans only as they have not been confirmed.

The situation hasn’t really improved. They did an echo this morning on her heart and it isn’t apparently able to work without the pumps. That’s all the information we have for now, but we will update you when we know more.
Thanks, as always, for your prayers and support!

Just received this from Billy:
We met with the Neurologist today. Based on the EEG results that monitors her brain function, the Neurologist’s opinion is that mom has moderate to severe brain damage. This is not conclusive as they are not able to move her at this time to get a MRI or CAT scan. She continues to have two pumps that are working her left and right side of her heart and she is on dialysis which is working for her kidneys. As we have more information we will let you know. Please keep praying.

We met with the Neurologist and he gave her a sedative to hopefully stop all seizure activity in the brain so they could accurately measure the brain activity. The Neurologist felt the seizures experienced by Mom might have affected the testing of the brain activity. This sedative will last 24 hrs so we don’t expect any movement from Mom until after that time. Please continue to pray.
