I have a wonderful daughter and fiance. I have a big family who I enjoy spending time with. My daughter is my world and she keeps me busy.
About my Loss:
My niece Isabella (Issy) was taken from my family at the age of 2. She was a light in all of our lives. It was so sudden. She passed away from cardio respiratory arrest due to a seizure while she was sleeping. I think about her everyday, and although the day to day is back to normal, there are those days that I feel overwhelming grief.
Crystal, thank you for your kind words. I am so sorry for the loss of your neice, she is such a beautiful little girl. I can just picture her waiting for her family at heaven's gate. What a beautiful homecoming you will have. The only thing that gets me through the pain is knowing that my mom will be the first person to greet me when it's my turn to go home. I miss her so much, she was my best friend, we talked every day, sometimes twice a day. She was such a special person in my kids life, she had a very close relationship with my daughter. They were like two peas in a pod, I always joke that I'm raising another Karen. I don't know how people deal with the death of their loved ones without the knowledge of heaven and God. I don't think I could. Thanks for sending me a friend request and for reaching out to me. The same goes for me, if you ever need to talk to someone I'm here!
The only person who acknowledged yesterday's significance was a friend I made here. Not one real-world "friend" or family member. I did not receive a single text or phone call yesterday. No one said, "wow. four…"
It's four weeks today. I did some number-crunching, and it's been:
123 days since I last saw him in person and hugged him goodbye, when I dropped him off at the hospital.
70 days since I last saw him through a window, before saying…"
So I took an exam yesterday worth 33.3% of my grade for one of my classes. It was the same exam that I was studying for at 9:41 on September 27. I studied for that test 3 times because I didn't know when I was going to have to retake…"
