On top of that growing up we lived next to the same people the whole time I lived at home, those neighbors still live next door to my parents, we are very close with them, she used to baby sit us and when she had kids I babysat them. They still attend my kids birthday parties. Well on thursday I get a call from my mother telling me that last Friday my neighbor collapsed, she had a massive stroke, she didn't wake up until Sunday, her mind is apparently all there but she is completely paralyzed and can't talk at all, she is also forgetting to breathe at times so she's on a ventilator. She is only 47.
I am feeling as though I have stepped into someone else's life over night.
