a sad day.

Today we got the call we’ve been dreading. Firefly’s best friend since high school has two children with her husband: a beautiful girl, and an amazing young man with musc.ular dyst.rophy. About a month ago he was in the hospital with pneumonia. He was treated and released when there was nothing more they could do, and we were able to make a trip up not long after to spend some time with him and his family. He was doing better, but the doctors said that he probably wouldn’t make it through another respiratory episode.

It didn’t take that long.

This morning, while his mom was giving him a breathing treatment, he simply stopped breathing. Last night he was playing his W.ii and eating meatballs. Tonight he’s gone. We’re all heartbroken.

He was at home, with the family who loved him. Tomorrow we’ll celebrate my birthday, and Saturday morning we’ll get up and make the drive to Firefly’s hometown to mourn and help however we can.
