My other half
I lost my wife February, 13 2014. She had caught the flu and had severe pneumonia but her white blood cell count was so low her body never had a chance to fight back the infection. She ended up having to be put on two different life supports the entire time she was sick. One for her lungs and one for her weak heart. I went to see her everyday that week so I could be with her every chance I got and so that I could be there when she woke up. The doctors told me that she was making progress and getting better everyday. Hearing that every day gave me hope.
Then that dreadful morning I received a call from the doctors. They told me there was a complication and ask me to come as soon as I could. When I got there they told me that a vein in her brain had ruptured and that she had already passed away ealrier that morning, something that was one in a million they said, she just turned 31. My heart shattered when they told me that. Then all those pieces were stepped on when they disconnected her from the life support and her warm hand that I held so tightly to turned cold. I never got to say goodbye and I love you. This all happened in just one week.
I just turned 29 and we have been together for 11 years with 3 beautiful children, my son 8, my daughter 6, and my youngest daughter who turned 1 on February 19 the following week. I don't understand...... we had so many things we were going to do, like what to do for our daughter's birthday. We were going to get our own place, we had bought pots, pans, silverware, the whole nine yards. But now those plans are out of reach. Every thing feels empty now. I know I have to be strong for my kids but its so hard. I don't know what to do, things are not the same anymore. She was my light in the darkness and now when its dark as ever my light is gone.
