Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this
One of my son's babysitters almost died one morning. She didn't know she had MS, and had her first attack and it was so bad that she almost died. She was in the ICU for months, and then had to go to rehab for months. She was only 23 when that happened. She has not had any more flare ups thank goodness. If her mom had not insisted that she call 911 while her mom drove over there, she would have died before anyone could get there.
Then my husband's cousin broke his leg and went in for surgery to get it fixed. The anesthesia killed him because he didn't know he had malignant hyperthermia. My husband's family all got tested and my father in law, my husband, all of the siblings and cousins are all positive for it. I'm sure my son is too. He can't be tested until he is 12 though. They take out a chunk of your thigh muscle to test how it reacts to the anesthesia.
You just never know when something will happen.
sometimes i think when we are having a bad day or feeling sorry for ourselves for one reason or another, something comes up to slap us back into a quick reality check and be ever so greatful of all the things in our lives that we do have. i got one today around 11:15.
my fireman's first cousin's wife was out walking their 18month old(only child) this morning down in awatukee. she collapsed and died right there on the sidewalk. we don't know the reason yet, her husband was out of town, her family lives in the midwest, his family in CA. all i know is that i will hug my family tighter tonight, but two other families will never be the same.
his cousin's wife passed, not the child.
