September 27, 2017, she woke up with a serious nosebleed and Thomas her grandson, rushed to the hospital. When she got there her blood pressure was 223/180. Medication was injected intravenously to bring her pressure down but she flatlined (Died). The Doctor called Code Blue but before they tried to resuscitate her, God brought her back. When she opened her eyes, she smiled and said, “I’ve got Jesus!” They all laughed and one of the Nurses said, “She’s got Jesus.” Presently, Doris is doing fine.
