    I'm interested if you're inclined to share.

    My aunt died, with no warning, at 48. My uncle, a physician, came home and found her just outside one set of patio doors, with shopping bags scattered around. Even though he KNEW she was dead, he couldn't accept it and tried to resuscitate her, after calling 911. The paramedics came and immediately concluded what he already knew. :(

    She had lupus, and severe asthma, but no one was prepared for her death.

    Her daughter--my cousin and best friend--shared her birthday, May 9. So every birthday since then has been bittersweet.

    I hear you! I'm glad you're doing well now.

    I had my first brush with death at 21; ended up needing a hysterectomy the next year. I thought, that's it, nothing worse will ever happen. I was wrong. :eek: From a brain tumor to sepsis--which had me hospitalized for six months, I've run the gamut!
