Yup. That phone call happened November 4, 2017. My first-born daughter. 28. Regular half-marathon runner. Desert and forest camper, rock climber. Eats right. Stays fit. Helps others for a living. Stroke.

Nothing can prepare you for hearing your kid call and say something like that and there is no respite from the memory of seeing them do CPR on your glassy-eyed child in a hospital room after heart surgery. Those things are never going away for me. Β What also won’t go away from me though is that Erin’s roommate had the wisdom to see that Erin needed to go to the ER and took her. Right then. I am so thankful for that.
