On December 1st 2020 a 911 call was placed for 63 year old man by the name of Tommy James who was unresponsive paramedics came and was able to resuscitate Tommy on the way to the gurney in his walker the paramedics had let Tommy fall out of his walker even after repeated attempts and screams of me letting them know he was going to fall they picked him up and placed him on the gurney Tommy was taken by ambulance to a Tucson hospital. Tommy was responsive and talking to me in the ambulance before they shut the doors and drove away. He was still alert upon arrival, then unfortunately something went terribly wrong and Tommys heart stopped again. As doctors took Tommy back to surgery to start his heart the doctor said a wire got stuck while trying to place it into his heart and Tommy was then placed on life support. To my horror I got a call December 3rd telling me Tommy had no quality of life and he would have to be taking off life support. Alone I sat with Tommy as they removed the tubes, and alone I watched him slip away within 10 minutes he was gone. Unfortunately His family is unable to help with the cost of cremation due to personal reasonswhich has left it all on me. I had 8 wonderful years with this man, and he deserves a proper goodbye. I'm begging the community for help In what has been the most tramatic time in my life.
