I'm going to get lambasted because I haven't put this on my Wild TP board first. I went to Delaware on Sunday, and came back this morning. My voice mail was full of messages, and I thought the collectors were having a field day calling me.


It was my husband's family. My #1 son died this morning. 17 years old. I found out at noon, but husband wouldn't tell me till I drove over.

They finish the autopsy tomorrow.. he had a lot of seizures lately and had missed some school time.

My Call Waiting was going off and beeping for the collectors on Line 2 as I was talking to his father about funeral arrangements. I was going to switch calls and cuss at them, but I feel kind of empty.

I imagine I am still in shock. I kept asking the husband if he was playing a cruel joke on me. Then these people kept coming. It hasn't hit me yet.

wild :(
