His breathing is slow, broken, harsh – Que Pasa?!

His temperature falling; he shivers – Que Pasa?!

His body trembles; 3 blankets are not enough – Que Pasa?!

Emergency Response Team gathers – noises, voices – Que Pasa?!

Michael; can you breathe? If something happens, do not resuscitate, you hear! Michael; can you breathe? Cold oxygen pumping through now – Nurse! Cold oxygen; night of many sorrows – Doctor! I wish for more warm blankets – Administrator! Roommate; you stay with us – you hear?

Care: Good grief; blood pressure dropping ominously – you stay here! Michael; can you hear me? Breathe deep now; in, and out | Breathe gently now; in and out | Breathe dulcemente now; in and out. Think of your beloved daughter; breathe in and out | Hope: Think about what remains to be done; breathe in and out | See the loving welcoming embrace of your closest friends; breathe in and out | Michael; can you hear me now? Puedes respirar? Compassion: Your daughter is smiling at you; see her? Stay with us; you hear?! Yes; breathe in; breathe out. Love surrounds you.
