my sisters red haired daughter

my sister...susan. her daughter is dying today.

her raven haired, blue eyed child.


what a beauty she is.

she is married to a handsome guy.

together they made two absolutely beautiful children. one is 6 the other 2.

this past year, jessica had a couple of seizures. so antiepileptic meds were added on top of her other meds.

while she and her family slept last night, she suffered cardiac arrest as a result of side effects from the meds.

they performed cpr on her twice between the house and the hospital and revived her enough to put her on life support in ICU.

but she was already dead really. nonresponsive. pupils gag relex.

at this particular moment...she is still alive. but artificially. the life support machines keeping her alive until the transplant team arrives to remove her organs. i wonder how many people will live because jessica will die.

my sister. ive talked to her many times today. there is no word to describe a mothers grief and agony when she is losing a child. she said she wants to take her baby home.

i wish i could take my sister home...back to the days when we were children and had no cares.

im sorry susan.

  3. your family will be in my prayers....
