I was working out of town back 2008 when I got a call from the ER that my wife had suffered a heart attack and she was being transferred to the heart hospital for surgery that night. After driving all night, I have arrived at the hospital as she was coming out of the OR and would be in recovery for a few hours. I found a bench to stretch out on and got a two hour nap before going to her room. Ten years later my wife has another heart attack and more of the same surgery again at the heart hospital. Out lives have changed in ways that make us happy to see another sunrise and sunset, so take time to smell the rose's for tomorrow may not come. If we both make it to next spring we will have 30 years together and I wish for 30 more, knowing it will not happen. So kiss your love ones when you leave for work and take time for the little things in life, for one day all we will have are the memory's.I'm not saying this to get attention, but to show you guys, there is hope when things get rough.... cause, they will. We have a great community here and support is always helpful.
May11th @ 0615 I was driving out to the range to meet a friend to shoot. I had just left the house 10 minutes prior, told the wife I loved her and handed her a protein shake on the couch(she was big into crossfit). Got down the road and she calls saying something is really wrong in her head ... we prayed on the phone... she said "I'm dying" and she dropped the phone. I got home about a minute later to find her convulsing. Called 911 and sat in the hospital with her for 5 days till I had to disconnect her from lifesupport on May 15th. She had a pontine stroke which isn't good and she never woke up.
A lot went on in those 5 days, but it would make the post a few pages. She was a christian and loved God. I was a "christian" but not where I should have been. Thru those 12 weeks till now, I have been broken and had all sorts of thoughts because I loved her more than anything. God took me from a very dark place to wanting to bless others and help them thru this kind of junk. Point is, when you hit your breaking point, which I definitely did, God loves you. I'm here if anyone is having suicidal thoughts or whatever.View attachment 206116
My condolences on your loss.
