Don't Cry Because It's Over...
30 April 2004
Coincidence? I found this website a few days after my uncle Albert in Germany developed a brain aneurysm. My mom (his sister) was very distressed and always tried to communicate with his wife. Since I had no prior experience to this kind of a thing, I started researching.
On the April 25 he had a pain on his whole right side, he was rushed to the hospital. I was already distressed by the fact that they didn't send him to a specialty medical center. I and my mom kept checking in for how Albert was doing.
He lost control of his right side. One night he pulled all the needles and I.V's out of his right side, and could stumble over a few sentences. It made me really hopeful, and my mother and I both thought he was going to live. His health declined.
Today, April 29, he died, and Albert's wife called us 12 hours after it had occured. It was the worst way to wake up and hear bad news. My day was hard having surges of excitability and surges of extreme depression. My changing mood was recognized very easily because I always try to find optimistic parts of life, which explains my name Joy.
It was especially hard for my mother who had lost her mother for the same thing, a brain aneurysm, 20 to 25 years earlier, at the same time of year. The day she died, was the day my uncle first felt the pains and numbing of his side. I just wanted to shar what happened to him, and give others that go through the same thing, or have gone through it. DON'T CRY BECAUSE IT'S OVER SMILE BECAUSE IT HAPPENED.
