It's funny how you can be on top of the world one day and in a deep valley the next. We had been basking in the glory of our trip and rushing around trying to get back into our regular routine when devastation hit us like a boulder Wednesday. Hubby went to Mama J.'s and Papa T.'s house Wednesday evening to take them dinner, just like he does every night, and found Mama J. dead. We tried CPR, but she was gone by the time he found her, and the EMT's confirmed our fears shortly after they arrived. They believe she probably had a heart attack.
While she had not been well for a while, she certainly wasn't giving us any signs of anything out of the ordinary, and we were completely shocked by her death. We're still in shock. We laid her to rest today, and for the next couple of days we will try to eliminate some of the complete exhaustion we're feeling. I haven't been this tired since I gave birth to Teen Angel.
Our next step will be trying to decide how to best care for Papa T.. We're not sure yet how we're going to do that as we don't really like for him to be alone at any time, and we can't be with him 24/7. I'm sure the good Lord will show us the way. We're just trying to take it one day at a time. This is a difficult time, especially for Hubby and Teen Angel. Hubby and his mother were close. Teen Angel and Mama J. shared a special bond, and TA is without one of her best friends. It all seems so unfair. We've had so much tragedy in this family in the last ten years. But it's not for me to ask why. We'll simply put one foot in front of the other, and move forward. Your prayers are appreciated, brothers and sister.
