Comment by missy yesterday
I had a realization at therapy today. My oldest daughter is upset with me because since my mother's suicide and sons murder...I'm just a different person. She thinks I should be better, better for her. In July it will be 2 years...that is crazy to me though...it feels like it was yesterday. I wish I could be the way I was, but I am not. She, my daughter needs me to heal for her own sake and I can't change for her. She is 25 and she lost her big brother and her grandma, but she has expectations of me and sadly I am not who I was before this tragedy.
Comment by Tracey L yesterday

I agree with Wendy.  I am sure I will never be the same, but am learning to handle the day by day stuff, it is just the holidays and special dates when the family would always celebrate that hits me.  For example, my family had a celebration dinner for the birthdays of the month.  My son's 21st is tomorrow and I am changing it from eating at the house to going out to eat so it is not so demanding on all of us to have to try to carry on the tradition.

Comment by Wendy (Boabie) yesterday

Lisa Renee, it has been close to 8 months since I lost my mom and best friend. Frankly, I don't think I will ever feel quite the same again. I think we learn to deal with the pain, but I think we are forever changed. I am sure that is the case for myself. I do think one day we will be better, but just not quite the same if that makes sense.

Comment by Lisa Renee yesterday

How long does it take to feel like yourself again? 4/28 will be a year that I lost my mom. She was my best friend.  What a year!  I also lost two friends who I thought were close, but they pretty much wrote be off....

Thank you Kristin.  My Mom was so excited about having another great grandchild.  We found out she was a little girl the day Mom passed.

Comment by Kristin Renee on Saturday

Congratulations to you and your family, Tracy L and welcome to the world baby Alexandria Diane.

Comment by Tracey L on Saturday

I am pleased to announce that my grand daughter Alexandria Diane, in honor of my Mother was born in April 10th.  I swear that Mom was with us when she was born!

I completely agree its unacceptable. 

Comment by Dave on April 8, 2014 at 4:27pm

Doctors doing their job is one thing but not paying attention and subsequently causing a healthy person to die during a minor procedure is unacceptable. And denying culpability despite overwhelming evidence is what turns a medical error into murder as far as I'm concerned. For the doctor's sake, I hope that they agree to settle or are found guilty if it goes to court.

It's tough Dave, today i mean doctors do what they do and we are not specialists who are qualified to oversee this.
