RE: The Last Leaf help with homework: Why does Johnsy decide

Why does Johnsy decide that she wants to live? How do you respond to this change in attitude as a reader?

How does O. Henry prepare you for the surprise at the end of the story? Would you have preferred a different ending? Explain.

She decides she wants to live after she saw that the last leaf stayed on the ivy vine after two harsh storms so she took it as a sign saying that she will live and to a more positive attitude. This story surprised me because the whole time I thought she was going to die for sure but she turned her whole attitude around and wanted to live.
