December 29, 1976 - December 9, 2019
Danika Burr 12/29/1976 to 12/9/2019 Danika passed away peacefully on Dec. 9, 2019. Danika was having trouble keeping food down and severe pain in her abdomen. We went to hospital on October 21st and the diagnosis was liver failure. She had a severe infection in abdomen due to perforated bowels (a result of liver failure) and spent a week in SICU before being transferred to a recovery room. She slowly improved each day with the goal of getting healthy enough to surgically repair perforated bowels and eventually a liver transplant. On Wednesday before Thanksgiving she was diagnosed with aspiration pneumonia and rushed back to ICU because she couldn't breathe. She was placed on a ventilator and eventually sedated to withstand the high settings of the vent. Her kidneys started to fail and she was diagnosed with Hepatorenal Syndrome with only possible treatment of dialysis. That combined with the ventilator, infection in abdomen, and overall weakness from so much time in this condition made for an unreasonable expectation of ever being strong enough for a liver and kidney transplant. She fought so hard and didn't want to be in pain any longer. They made her comfortable, disconnected the vent and she passed away peacefully in my arms listening to Christmas music. Danika didn't want a funeral service and instead wishes for friends and family to remember her in the ways she touched our lives. For me, she was a fierce, mindful, passionate person that helped others in every way she could. She absolutely loved dogs and cared for many every day. She considered them her kids and it was endearing to see the love between them. Danika loved Halloween and Christmas. She loved to decorate and was an amazing cook. She loved to entertain and always went out of her way to make others happy. I miss her already and am lost without her. Danika was very private and believed in quality over quantity.
