Mottling Stages of Death?

Answer

When a person is terminally sick they can go through several stages leading up to death. One of those stages is called mottling. When mottling starts you will notice changes in the person. The terminally ill patient may start to withdraw from others. Also you make notice a lack of bowel control, changes in the skin color, changes in the vital signs and changes in the breathing patterns. As a person nears death their breathing becomes shallow and the skin may feel clammy.
