The Patient's Daughter, Part 2

I almost started this post by saying that she was a fighter. But that wasn't true.
She had given up. 
She was tired...ready to go home. But she hung on for another two weeks, her daughter by her side the whole time. 
She breathed...labored. But she still breathed. And her heart kept beating. But she was already gone. 
She finally went home last week. She's now finally able to rest. After being on this earth for 90 years, she had earned that.
