A mother has tragically passed away in her husband’s arms after complaining about feeling tired while on a dream vacation with her family.
42-year-old Britain-based Zoe Williams was in the US with her husband and their 11-year-old son when she suddenly started feeling sick.
“We flew over to San Fransisco for a dream holiday. We arrived at our hotel around tea time and she was fine,” 45-year-old husband Jason said in an interview with Wales News.
“We were excited making plans for the following day to go and watch the San Francisco 49ers American football team.”
Nevertheless, in a matter of hours, their dream vacation turned into a horror story as Zoe collapsed on the floor of their hotel room.
As the mother initially suspected, she must have been suffering from a relapse of an autoimmune condition that affected her two decades ago with the same symptoms.
What the woman didn’t know, however, was that a secretive, undiagnosed blood clot had been gradually progressing until her life was in critical condition.
“We all left the hotel room and she walked 20 to 30 yards and collapsed. [She] said she just felt tired and told us to go on and she would just stay back at the hotel to sleep, but she seemed fine in herself,” Jason recalled.
“Zoe said she didn’t want us to take her to hospital in San Francisco because she trusted her doctors in Heath Hospital in Cardiff and promised she would go straight there when we got home.”
Just before the flight back to England, Zoe’s condition began deteriorating once again as she lost consciousness at the airport.
“She started to lose consciousness and the airport medical center advised us not to fly. They said we needed to get Zoe seen by a doctor again before they could be sure she was safe to fly home, but the doctors was closed until Monday,” Jason added.
After settling down in their room at Grand Hyatt hotel, the mum’s health further deteriorated until she started struggling to breathe.
“I called an ambulance, but she passed away in my arms before they arrived,” Jason said.
“This has left a massive hole in our life and she never could be replaced. What I’m struggling to comprehend is why this had to happen to her.”
