So I'm told. But I didn't mind.

Had not seen that link, thanks. Yep, curious things seem to happen when you're dying. E.g., at one point my mom (whom I was holding at the time) whispered to me very clearly: "We've got to find a hammer to break the lock on that door." (She also kept telling me to watch out for the holes or we'd fall. It was like we were on some kind of quest or something.)
Anyway, Ma lingered a couple thunderstormy days, then the sky cleared and it got lovely and cloudless and cool (this was 11 May 2006). And the power went out. Not during all the violent thunderstorms?huge limbs down in the back yard, etc.?but on a calm, sunny morning. So we opened the windows in her room to let fresh air and birdsong through the screens. Soon after, she was gone.
And then the power came back on.
Part of me imagines that Ma made the power go out so we'd open the windows and she could fly out on the breeze. 'Course, another part of me says: "Don't be such an idoit."
Took me a few days to go through the entire thread, but it is well worth the time. It is great, and I'm not so naive and gullible to think it's all true, but I also don't think everyone is lying either.
