My mother in law recently died very suddenly. The doctors say it looks like blood clot or a massive heart attack, but I'm unsure. Her sons did not want an autopsy, but they were going to donate her organs. They said they could not use them because of enlarged lymph nodes, which could indicate a system wide problem. Doing some research, she had several of they symptoms of Lymphoma, fatigue, eating less, losing weight, and a couple others. They were so mild that no one thought anything of them, and she acted pleased with the weight loss. She was sitting and talking one minute, gasped, had a convulsion, and then that was it. They had a faint pulse, but they could not get her back. If this is not it, does anyone have any idea what it might have been?
