Reality checks suck. Big time. And they always seem to occur when you least expect them. Today was pulling my phone out of my purse to check the battery only to find I had a text from a friend saying that his partner was in ICU after a fall on Friday and they expected to take him off the ventilator on Monday.
WTF? This is how the universe works? Apparently he had a heart attack and stumbled going down stairs and hit his head on the concrete floor. The doctors think his brain was deprived of oxygen for too long before he was found. The last update was that the brain activity that he would need for recovery was not there.
Needless to say today has been rough. This is the 2nd unexpected death of a friend in the last 6 months. So universe I hear you. I'm trying my best not to take people for granted but I'd really like for you to tell me in nicer terms.
