Wife from real "Fault in Our Stars" couple dies

Wife from real

Her husband, Dalton Prager, died just days earlier, on Saturday, after suffering from the same disease. The pair met on Facebook in 2009 and were married two years later.

Both families believed Katie's condition was far worse than Dalton's, saying she wasn't expected to make it much longer. "I know it is selfish to be sad, I had her so many days, but she is in the arms of Jesus today and she can breathe without oxygen, she no longer has to do dialysis and He has taken away all the pain she endured", her mother posted on Facebook on Thursday morning.

At 7:10 p.m. - they remember the time precisely - Katie got out of her vehicle and saw Dalton leaning against a brick wall, looking cool and handsome in his sunglasses. Katie was in hospice care since September 7.

Katie received a lung transplant previous year, later developed lymphoma and went into hospice care in Flemingsburg, writing recently on a fundraising page for her medical and funeral expenses that "I get to spend the rest of my time surrounded by people and things that make me happy". The couple was able to FaceTime as Dalton was dying.

Katie received a lung transplant a year ago and later developed lymphoma.

Codeine not safe for kids doctors warn
Too little means the medicine doesn't work; too much means there could be risky or even fatal slowdowns in breathing. Codeine should not be prescribed to children who are under 12 years old, the AAP said.

Katie's mom, Debbie, shared the news on Facebook. "Life is short, love as hard as you can", Katie's mother wrote on Facebook.

"My breathing is pretty crappy and I see you are in the hospital".

Dalton's health was initially stable enough, he was expected to fly to University of Kentucky Hospital., where a bed in the intensive care unit was waiting for him. Within three days of returning home, she began to feel sick again, but was told she could not return to UPMC due to reaching her lifetime maximum on Medicare.

They were last together for their fifth anniversary in July, and until his death last weekend, Dalton had hoped to see his wife one last time before she passed away. "Katie knew how much she was loved", the post reads.

She even knew how their fairy tale would end.
