THE DAY MY HEART BROKE AND DIED
JULY 22, 2009- THE WORST DAY OF MY LIFE! ON THIS DAY MY SON CODY BLAKE MCCLELLAN PASSED AWAY FROM CANCER, MENINGITIS AND A WEEK LONG COMA!
It was a normal day, just a monthly check in with the doc. Cody and I were laughing, playing around like always when the doctor who we had seen for 4 years came in with a look that I will never forget. He asked Cody how he was feeling and if had "the rash" long. This rash isn't a rash, it is a sign of cancer. His counts were way down; the leukemia was back.
So I watched the fear come back to him and to me and just cried. We went to the hospital and he never came home again; within a month my son went thru hell, the port they put in ended up giving him fungal meningitis.
We spent his 11th b-day with his friends here; we had cake and pizza. At the time he was in remission and his port was just put in. So we believed everything was gonna be ok. Within a week he stroked and I really don't want to get into that. It was the worst thing at that point to see. I couldn't do anything for him.
He went to ICU where after hours of tests and waiting they brought me, my mom and fiance to a room where they told me had 90% of his brain covered in blood. He stayed in and out of a coma for 2 weeks. The last thing he said to me was "I LOVE YOU MOMMY".
I WATCHED HIM DIE I WAS SLEEPING IN THE BED WITH HIM WHEN I WAS WOKE UP AT 4:45 TO BE TOLD HE HAD PASSED ON. I WENT FROM HAVING MY SON EVERYDAY FOR 11YRS TO NOT HAVING HIM AT ALL. HE WAS NOT JUST MY SON, HE WAS MY EVERYTHING!
