When i was in high school, I belonged to a theater for the Deaf. Our teacher was not much older and she has stayed a friend for over 30 years. She had her children starting when I was a senior. First a girl, then twin girls (by surprise, they nearly died) They were so small and I was on college break so I took care of the babies and the first one for years. The twins turned 29 I think on the 21st, and one of them just didn't wake up this morning. She was home visiting her parents and her mom (my friend) just couldn't wake her. We dont know yet what happened. I last saw her end of April, she was living in CA and trying to be an actress. She was of course, waitressing. Taking lots of classes etc. Very sweet and happy. The other twin had a hole in her heart not found until they were 19 and it was repaired. They checked this one and she was so scared she would suddenly die sometime, they said they didn't think she had it but would monitor. Could it be that? could it be all of the other things we know young kids get into? Could she have been suicidal? We just dont know yet. I am heartbroken. Another friend from this group just died a couple of months ago from cancer leaving his sweet wife and two young kids behind. This is just too much. And Q gets really inappropriate about death. Says all kinds of crazy things because he doesn't know what to say. I am trying not to just tell him to shut his pie hole. HE is so miserable right now with his rash etc. So I am trying to be a grown up but I am just feeling sick. I have like 900 things t do for that IEP meeting tomorrow, for writing his waiver plan tomorrow and for papers for his Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) evaluation tomorrow. Really sad day. Thanks for letting me share.
