She was helpless and I didn't help her. I have been told she would have never awoke again, once the coma started; that she had probably had a serious stroke, but she held out three days after she took her last drink of water and had some kind of response to the morphine and the other drugs until only a few hours before she passed.
A story she told me keeps running through my head. When she had surgery once, she was given anectine. It didn't where off like it should and she spent several hours aware, but unable to respond. As it did start wearing off, she tried to kick the sheet she was covered with off her feat. A nurse kept recovering her feet and told my aunt that the movement was just an unconscious movement, when the aunt objected. That mad her furious she told me.
I keep remember her arms clenching and her breathing getting really rough, almost angry when we gave her the drugs, and the time she seemed to be struggling to get up. It was fairly early in the process. She couldn't control her limbs, but she acted like she was struggling to get up. When someone tried to calm her she would turn her head toward them and growl inarticulately. She seemed to be able to understand but unable to coordinate her movements or form words.
