last year when my grandpa was in the hospital, I made friends with some of the residents. they were all in wheel chairs mainly from diabetes but another one lost his legs in an accident. because i was at the hospital constantly with my grandfather we became quite close. Then i started having medical problems and I was in the hospital more than i was out. So for over a year, I have kept close contact with them. well, when my son was in the hospital last month, I went out to have a cigarete and my friend diana was out there also. I asked her where Bryant was and she informed me that he died. Apparently she fell out of his wheel chair and broke something in his shoulder that required surgery. During surgery he had a stroke and was put on life support for 2 days when his parents decided to let him go. he died 15 mins later. Diana was so heart broken because she wanted to marry him. they were in love. It broke my heart for her and because i would no longer see my friend. yesterday, a nurse came up to me and asked me if I knew that Mike had died. I thought she meant bryant but she said that Mike died also. again, I am heartbroken. the 3 friends I made and 2 of them are now dead. I feel like I should bring Diana home with me so I can protect her. she needs dialysis 3 times a week so it is out of the question. Mikes funeral is in virginia so i will not be able to go to it seeing as how I live in NY. thanks for letting me share.
Oh Tina, I am so sorry. You have already been through so much. I don't know how you do it, you are such a strong person and have been through more in the last year than most go through in a lifetime. I wish I could take the pain away, I really do because you are such a sweetheart. It can only get better, just keep telling yourself that and one day it will happen. I just hope that you don't have to go through anything else before it does. I am here if you need to talk. you know how to find me.
((hugs)) and give that precious dd of yours hugs too.
