    Update. It's been 2 weeks and I am doing better. In terms of cause of death, this is interesting, so let me back up a few years.
    Each year, my wife and I would travel from Oklahoma to South Carolina to see my mom. About 2 years ago upon visiting we noticed her abdomen had suddenly distended and it was quite noticeable! I chalked it off to overeating but she had always been very petite so this didn't make sense. I urged her to see a doctor but my mother was not the type to do that, claiming she was fine. She was an avid smoker and enjoyed her wine(she started drinking regularly after my dad's passing 25 years ago) Evidently her liver had become diseased and contributed to ascites ( fluid in abdomen). This in turn caused cardiac arrest. This all sounds horrible, since modern medicine could have helped ( liver transplant, etc) but......that would not have mattered since she was nearing 80 and the likelihood of an intervention was minimal if not impossible. I remember 20 years ago talking to her about her drinking and it obviously did no good.
    With all this being said, my mother was the most caring person I've ever known. She lived a good life and had a good relationship with God.
    Please take care of your bodies. After all, it is a temple that should not be defiled. Well, that's what I believe.
    Thanks again for your prayers . I've started restoring my 1965 Honda which is helping me with the grieving process.
