The mother of a 5-year-old Rio Rancho girl who died of the H1N1 virus this week says her daughter showed no symptoms until the day she died from it. Danielle Olivares, mother of 5-year-old Trinity Olivares, took her to the hospital on Monday because she was vomiting. A few hours later, the girl's heart stopped beating. Trinity's family found out on Thursday that she tested positive for H1N1. Family and friends made their way into St. Thomas Aquinas Church on Friday where a rosary was held for the girl. Before the somber services, the girl's mother said, "She was an energy ball—a very soft-spoken little girl." Danielle Olivares says that Trinity started to feel sick on Monday. "The only symptom I can say she had was just vomiting," Danielle said. Looking pale, Trinity's family rushed her to the hospital. Her mother said, "She was looking really dehydrated, so we decided to take her in, took her to the hospital. They put her on IVs right away and started giving her fluids. At that point, we thought she was going to be okay." A few hours later, Trinity's condition worsened. Danielle said, "Just all of a sudden, her heart just stopped all of a sudden. It was very fast."
