I'm having a really hard time processing this. I found out this morning that my OB died yesterday. It was sudden and unexpected. She was young and healthy, a mother to three young boys. The oldest must have been 8 and her youngest wasn't even two yet. She delivered all three of my children, and was a friend during my losses. She was an amazing doctor, and woman. I just don't understand...
All I know is she called in sick to work on Wednesday, her appt's were rescheduled, and then she died on Thursday...
I've been crying all day long. I can't imagine what her family must be going through. And I feel so sad that she didn't get to see her babies grow up...
I had a postop scheduled with her for next week (had a c section 5 weeks ago) but I don't think I can go back to that office now, I think it would be too hard.
Anyway, I just needed to get that out. I'm so overwhelmingly sad....

So sorry. My older son's pediatrician died a couple of years ago. He was a great man, but we weren't nearly as close as you are with your doctor. :(
