Update with the family
Friday, December 19, 2008
Things for the family right now have become difficult. My brother whether he believes it or not has slipped into a depression. Dominic the 4 yr old cries for his mommy at night. Gannon the 14 yr old feels like he has no family now, Hailey is stuck at her dad's where she hates it. Allison the 20 month old just keeps everyone on our toes. Brenda's mom is a mess most days, talked with her yesterday and she broke down twice. I think about Brenda every single day, there hasn't been a day where she doesn't enter my mind. Brenda's mom told me yesterday that the nurses at Hurley hospital dropped off gifts and gift cards for the family. One of the nurses said they pick a family every year and they have never had 100% participation from nurses, let alone doctors. Apparently every nurse on the floor and even Brenda's doctor's donated money to go toward the family. Which then made Teresa break down and when she was telling me I broke down. Dominic was so excited about the gifts he was telling me what the nurses brought him and what the brought baby girl. I know it's only been a few months and it will take a long time to heal, if you can call it that. I can't imagine ever getting over the pain of her death I miss her so much, I miss her tell like it is point blank attitude. It used to drive me insane and at times I had wish for her to just shut up LOL what I would do to get that back in my life right now.
