It’s every child’s worst nightmare.
When Steven found his 45-year-old mother, Lyndee, totally unconscious in their Arizona home, he panicked.
He immediately called 911, and Lyndee was rushed to the hospital.
But the doctors were helpless.
For five days, Lyndee suffered seizures and eventually fell into a coma, where she remained for 12 days, according to Mirror.
Lyndee’s husband Steve, daughter Amanda, and son Steven hoped for a miracle.
But doctors said there was nothing more they could do. Twelve heartbreaking days after the tragic event, her family was advised to turn off her life support.
It’s a decision that no family should have to make, but they knew that Lyndee wanted to be an organ donor, which made the decision a little easier.
“My family knows I am an avid organ donor so when my organs started to fail, they made the decision — it was time to make that decision,” Lyndee would later explain.
The tough decision was made to pull the plug, honoring what the family thought was Lyndee’s wishes.
One by one, each of the family members visited Lyndee to say goodbye.
Little did her family know, Lyndee heard every word. Because Lyndee wasn’t brain-dead.
