The Worst Thing



At 11:30 pm on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2006, my darling Steve's heart stopped beating. Doctors tried to start it up again for an hour. It just wouldn't go.

There was no warning. He had no symptoms (snoring, maybe?). He started having chest pains while he was driving home from work.

He was 48.

The worst thing, now is. The worst day so far was yesterday. Followed by today.

I don't know what to say. What can I say? I hope the worst day will always be yesterday.

Hi Liz. You were in my thoughts all night and in fact I couldn't really sleep due to worry. You are definitely in my thoughts. Please do not hesitate a moment if there is anything at all I can do.

Oh, Liz. There is absolutely nothing I can say to make you feel better and I know that. You have suffered a devastating loss and I'm so sorry. I'm sure there's nothing at all I can do but if I can, please just tell me.

I am so sorry. 48 is far too young. I may be on the other side of the World but my thoughts are with you at this sad time. I hope your friends and family are there for you.

good god, Liz, you don't even know me but I read your blog regularly... I'm so sorry for your loss. I can only begin to imagine what it's like. Know that people out here are holding you in their thoughts, even the ones who are strangers to you.

It's such a shock, even when we know our loved ones are leaving us. Please give yourself time to get through it. I wish you and your family all the comforting, soothing and kind things in the universe this day and in the days to come.

Oh my god, I had to re-read this post about 5 fives before it sank in. I am so so sorry. So so so very sorry. I cannot even begin to imagine what you are going through. I feel like writing more but I am not sure anything I can say can make a difference. A big hug to you and I hope you stay well.
