Brandie will never be forgotten
by Rhonda Mowdy
My Loving Angel Brandie
My daughter Brandie was barely 24, when she was found by a friend on her bathroom floor. I had been talking to her every day, she told me she was not feeling well, and she had began coughing up blood, she told me it was hand fulls of bright red blood. I advised her to go to the doctor right away, which she did.
Later that evening, she text me to tell me the Dr. wanted her to follow up with her regular Dr. to have a scope put down into her lungs; and that this was very serious and could be cancer. I was shocked to read that text, and angry that if it was serious why did they send her home...
I called her and got no answer, then I text and said when you wake up in the morning call me please. She replied, "Will do.."
That following day, Jan. 9th, I got no response from her at all, her children were visiting their father for the weekend, she was to pick them up Sunday evening at 7pm.
I kept calling and texting with no response, then I got the horrific call from my mom to tell me that she just received a call saying that Brandie was found dead...
My heart stopped at that moment, I felt a horrible pain in my body, I could not breath... I fell to the floor and screamed. My baby was dead. The panic set in, OMG! I have to see her.. This was not going to be possible for 3 days..
When I finally did see her, I could not let go of her, and I just wanted to warm her cold body, laying there with such peace. I could not leave, I kept thinking just 5 more minutes. Please God just give me 5 more minutes with my baby..
The week to follow was overwhelming, and much of a blur.
My daughter Brandie died from a hemorrhage in her right lung.. I don't know why that had to happen to a young, beautiful mother of 3. All I can think is that she is in heaven with her baby that passed before her, and someday I will see her again.
