Life after Dude
here. I used to fret about this when Jordan was younger and had absence seizures but the fear had gone to the back of my mind as he'd been seizure-free for ten years at the time of his death. Everyone was very sweet at the inquest itself. The doctor who performed the autopsy stopped by, and as he'd handled Jordan's brain and heart, I felt it only appropriate to thank him and shake his hand. It's fair to say that the shock is wearing off a bit. Yoga and walking take the edge off when I'm feeling grim. We went to Thailand for ten weeks (for work) which was the trip of a lifetime. Now we're back and I've just had the first summer without Jordan, but it was much easier than I thought. I love being here, even when it's silent. I also came across a very helpful book, which I recommend to you. Not easy reading by any means but plenty in there to resonate with anyone whose child has died.
