Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to help you.I'm so, so sorry to hear about your girl. I can just imagine how distressed and heart broken you must be. Of course, we can't know for sure without an autopsy (and sometimes even with one), but it sounds as if she might have had a tumor that ruptured, possibly her spleen or her liver.These sorts of tumors can grow quite rapidly and be present for a relatively short period of time before they become suspected or confirmed. And, even if they are confirmed, they often have spread to such an extent that there's little that we can do about them.Other causes of sudden acute death would be blood clots to the brain or a bleeding aneurysm.I doubt if she was in any pain but I'm certain she knew something wasn't right.I know there are no words which can help ease the pain in this situation but I hope it helps to know that she most likely wouldn't have made it even if you had rushed her to the ER clinic.My sincerest condolences to you and your family at this sad time. Deb
