My mom called. The hospital told her that my brother's heart is stopping again and she should "get there fast."  10:27 AM Tuesday April 25.

Update 12:20 PM EDT ......... Mom is at hospital.  My brother's lungs have filled with fluid faster than they can get it out.  His heart rate has plummeted to 30 beats per minute.  

The respirator is on full blast, but he's still gasping for air because he's basically suffocating on his own body fluids.

We're Catholic, so John received his "Last Rites."  

Docs say his heart cannot withstand this.  

UPDATE 12:38 PM EDT . . . . . My brother, John Turner, went into cardiac arrest and died today, at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Wilkes Barre, PA at 12:32 this afternoon, after a nearly 3 year battle with Esophageal Cancer.

He was 52 years old.
