My mother has passed away. My stepfather said that over the weekend, her digestive system came to a halt and she couldn't speak or swallow. She had cancer and went downhill fast, but I'm in shock over how sudden this was. I didn't even get to see her or say goodbye.
With the exception of cousins I've never met, I'm the only one left in the family with evidence of HKPP (so far). Just making sure I document it here.
