We lost our beloved sex pot Patrick Swayze on September 14, 2009. And now, Patsy Swayze, Patrick's mother, has passed away just days before the anniversary of her son's death. At the age of 86, Patsy suffered a massive stroke Monday evening in her home, as reported by The National Enquirer.
After Patsy's stroke, she was taken home to set up a hospice. The National Enquirer reports:
At this point it’s just a matter of a short time before Patsy expires. She probably won’t last out the week. One bright spot is that her chain stroke breathing, which is a gasping for air, has subsided ... Since she began receiving hospice care no extraordinary means are being used to keep her alive, including intravenous feeding or oxygen. There is no tube down her throat, but she does have a catheter and a different, thicker tube under her blanket . She’s receiving a morphine drip to keep her comfortable and is on the edge of being in a comatose state. She has given instructions that she doesn’t want to be resuscitated.
Patsy's sons Donnie and Sean, along with daughter-in-law Jami sat holding her hands as she let go of life. An insider reported that Patsy had thrown the towel in a while ago.
Patsy’s been ready to go for a long time, especially after "Buddy" (her husband) had died and Vicky (her daughter) committed suicide. Some family members are flying in tomorrow to be by her side when the end comes. Her wishes are to be buried at Assumption Catholic Cemetery in Simi Valley. That’s where Buddy and Vicky are also interred.
Patrick Swayze, unlike his father and sister, was cremated. His ashes were scattered across his New Mexico ranch.
