On Halloween morning. He was on his way to work at 6 AM; was stopped to turn left on a one lane road. He was hit from behind by the drunk driver, which pushed my brother's car into oncoming traffic; he was hit again head on by a pick up truck. Those 2 drivers plus one more who swerved to avoid the accident and rolled his car ended up in the hospital, but no serious injuries. My brother was only 28 - his birthday was the 29th of October, 2 days before; he leaves a 2 yr old daughter. I just can't believe it, my whole family is in total shock. My mom is a complete wreck. I'm flying from here (Boston area) Monday morning to north Louisiana for the funeral - I'm 34 wks pg and terrified of flying this late in my pg - my midwife said it was ok, and I have a note from her, but my first was born early at 32 wks so I am already so scared that I'm going to have this baby early anyway. Luckily, I'm going to leave my 2 yr old at home with husband and husband's mom - I just can't imagine doing this with him to take care of too.
I'll sort of think of other things for a bit, then my mind comes back to it again. And again.
