We got a call yesterday (our 10th anniversary!) from family back in Utah telling us that my brother-in-law's wife just passed away. She was in her 40s and had been deathly sick ever since I've known my wife, and years before that, too. There were no children, and it was remarkable she survived so long given her horrible medical history (and medical mysteries).
She was found at home by her husband in the middle of the day after having been discharged from the hospital a few weeks before. We don't know much more about the circumstances of her passing, and we need to find out the funeral plans. I believe we will just fly out my wife and I'll stay home with the kids.
Sad news, even though it was a long time coming.
