I lost my Fiancee to Sudden Cardiac Arrest

I came home from work.  Normal day.  My sweetheart was in the shower, I heated up his dinner and made mine, he came out in his pajamas and kissed me hello.  He told me of his day and how happy he was that his union was on strike and he could be home now.  After dinner he always took a nap, but for some reason he didn't.  He saw the neighbor cutting down trees and walked up the top of the hill to give him a drink and talk.  I was changing the string on the lawn trimmer and the neighbor…

Hi susan, I too listen to celine dion most nights, but the song I listen to is called , it's all coming back to me , although I don't really know why I torture myself with listening to such songs but I feel it was written for me if you get what I mean, I also am shocked with how many other people are dealing with what we are, sometimes I think I'm the only one , but then I log on here and see how many others hearts are broken and it's heart breaking for I know not one of us will ever be truly happy again but I hope all of us gradually start to heal somewhat , even though I find this hard to imagine at the moment, I send to you the biggest of hugs and my best wishes xxx

Hi Susan , Andy was also a smoker , I begged him for years to quit but he never did , he was so healthy though , although I do think his smoking must have been to blame for his cardic arrest , I can think off no other reason , like you I haven't moved any off andys things , this sounds bizzare but his cigarette butts are still in his ash tray , I can not throw them out , I too feel like he's going to walk back through the door so I just keep all his things exactly as they were , to be honest I don't think I will ever beable to move them , in a way walking past his boots still in the hallway , makes me think that he will be home soon , I know thats probably not healthy , but this is the only way I can deal with this , take care xxxx

Hi susan, your situation was the same as mine, I also had to have my Andys life support switched off due to lack off oxygen to his brain via a sudden cardic arrest, its been 13 weeks for me and I still don't understand and don't think I ever will, my heart goes out to you and your familyxxxx

 Here is the story of my son, Matthew-He was an easy baby, full of smiles and laughter but a rather shy little boy. He was so gentle natured. He grew up to be a wonderful person. He was well liked by his schoolmates and continued to be a nice, sweet person. He wanted to be a 2nd grade teacher. He went to Community College, worked at PISD as a mentor and also worked part time at Tom Thumb.When he turned 21, his life changed forever. He had been experiencing issues with drooling, tiredness, kept…See More
