Couple dies with 40 minutes difference after 69 years together
Married 69 years ago, an elderly couple of Illinois, in the United States, died 40 minutes apart. Teresa, 89, was married to Isaac Vatkin, 91, and they were both hospitalized and severely debilitated at Highland Park Hospital. Although they were in separate rooms, the doctors decided to put the couple's beds together so that they could stay together.
It was then that their granddaughter, Debbie Handler, decided to join the hands of the grandparents. "I did not want them to feel scared, I thought if they knew they were together they could help," she told the Daily Herald.
Teresa passed away first, then was taken from the room and, 40 minutes after separating her hands, Isaac also died in his room. "The masters they felt for each other were so strong that they simply could not live without each other," said their daughter, Clara Gesklin.
Teresa was with Alzheimer's and when they discovered, Isaac learned to use the computer to be able to research on a woman's health condition and possible ways of healing. He lived to help his wife and was reluctant when they decided to refer Teresa to specialized treatment because they would have to be separated. However, he had to give in and visit her every day until they died together. The cause of Isaac's death was not disclosed.
Mother only has one. This is a phrase that should be remembered most often by mothers. Being one, even though she is a mother, she certainly will not be able to do the activities of two people (as she usually does), especially now, with the care of a newborn. In this way, it will be necessary to learn to delegate some of its attributions, even unwillingly.
One of the doubts I frequently get from mothers is about changing their children's diapers. First of all, leave of course diapers are needed until the child has complete control of elimination of feces and urine. The maturity of sphincter control varies from child to child, but in most cases occurs between 18 and 30 months of age.
