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....

Thanks...  It's just such a total shock.

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. :(

K, I'm so sorry to hear this. My heart goes out for her family and those that loved your Doctor. It sounded like you had a special friendship. Hugs.
