Remember to say I love you
Thursday, September 17, 2020
One year ago today my youngest son passed from SUDEP. For those of you not familiar with SUDEP, it is sudden unexpected death in epilepsy. He passed while taking a nap before working his overnight shift. Since he was epileptic and could not drive, I would take him to work. When I messaged him to let him know I was there I got no response. After a few minutes I used my emergency key to let myself in. The apartment was dark and quiet. I called his name but no response. I found him face down in his bed. He was already gone. Never forget to tell your loved ones that they are loved since they may be your last words to them. I am so glad the last words he heard from me was "I love you".
