Taken so suddenly
by Katy g
I lost my dad two weeks ago on April 4th 2013. I am 28 and live with my boyfriend. I saw him on the Tuesday and was speaking to him on Facebook a few hours before I got a call at work from the police saying he'd been in an accident and was in the back of an ambulance then they put my mum in who was hysterical so found out where to get to and left work right away! I work in covent garden London and had to get the tube to Essex - worst journey of my life and there were delays on the central line...got to the station and as I walked out I saw ambulances and so many police cars - Like a scene from csi, I knew this was for my dad. Then at the exit of the station i saw mums friend and a policeman who had waited for me and that's when I was told infront of loads of people at rush hour - I broke down and was taken to mum. He'd already been taken the mortuary which has left me heart broken as I could even kiss him or hold him goodbye. He had to have a post morterm and it was actually a heart attack that he had at the wheel which made the car crash after passing out. I'm in shock still it's so unreal he had no problems apart from one episode so he had chest pains called 999 had tests at the hospital but they just found fluid on the lungs which is actually a sign of heart disease but this wasnt tested for so I'm angry and confused! This was in January and 3 months later he had died... My mum suffers from depression and has got very I'll over it so instead of greiving for my beloved dad I've been caring for my mum. Back to work on Monday but not sure I am ready. My whole world feels like it's over and just hope I can be strong enough to get through this.
