i was at work and got the worst phonecall of my life. my 14 month old nephew J had not woken up and was not breathing. he had died in his sleep sometime during the night.
his death is unexplained. the coroners report says SUEDC, sudden unexplained death in a child. he was not sick. he had no health problems. he was to old for SIDS.
i just came home from spending the last 2 days with my sister. it breaks my heart to see her go through this and our whole family. our lives will never be the same again. i do have to say her church and friends and extended family have been awesome all year with helping out and reaching out; giving her hugs, crying with her on the phone, sending dinner over anonymously...
we spent a quiet day at the beach on monday, with her 4 yr old daughter, it was a beautiful sunny warm day in southern calif. yesterday we went to the cemetery so that she could go and i had not seen the headstone yet.
i have one more day before i have to go back to work. i think i'm going to curl up in a ball and spend the whole day in bed.
so please send your thoughts and prayers my sisters way. she needs all she can get.
