Today my mom went to heaven

We received a phone call late last night that my moms heart had stopped. They were able to bring her back with CPR and shocked her heart three times. When we got to the hospital and spoke with the doctor he told us there was nothing more they could do for her. All we could hope for at this point was a miracle.
She continued to battle through the night but wasn't making any progress. The ventilator was breathing for her and they had given her medicine to keep her blood pressure up. Together as a family we decided she would not want to live like this and put it in hers and God's hands.
At 6:32 this morning she gave up her fight and went to heaven.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. While my mom's battle may be over I feel like ours is just beginning.
