My bff from high school has a nephew who was born with some really horrible complications. His mother almost died and had a hysterectomy immediately after. She was in coma for several days. He was in the hosptal for a long time with issues. He came home fairly healthy after a time, but had to have several surgeries. At one point, as a complication from surgery, he was blind. His sight came back suddenly (or maybe it was gradual, but he was too young to verbalize it). From all appearances, he was the cutest healthiest little boy. Anyway, he's now three. He died this morning. I don't have the details yet. I don't have the heart to call my friend. She has no children and this little boy meant the world to her. I'm so heartbroken.
