Sorry for your loss. Same thing almost happened to me. Shot this doe perfect broadside. Was using some random fixed blade I received in the mail. Reason for using it, I got a little lost on the way in and ended up climbing a random tree. When it got light I saw too much brush for my mechanical. I saw the arrow hit and dona 90 straight down. Deer ran 30 and stopped. Waiting for her to fall a buck started to come in hot on her trail. This was going to be my first double. Well she ran off and he followed. No blood just brown hair in the broadhead. If I would have shot both, I would have dragged each of them to the trail I knew was to the west then went to the truck for the cart. That would have been exhausting. Technically it would have been the end. The next day I did not feel well and had my son call 911. 90% blocked artery. I call that doe my guardian angel doe, for not dieing on a perfect hit. Again sorry for your loss.
