Members oopsydaisy Posted January 20, 2012 Members Report Share Posted January 20, 2012 Sorry, this is so new to me. Please forgive me if I started rambling on and on. My sis just past away few days ago. She was like my other half, I can't cope with it at all, especially the way it happened. It was such a freak accident!!! She was found drown in the bathtub by everyone in my family. She had a severe case of fibromyalgia and needed to take hot bath to ease her pain. That tragic morning, I was upstairs in my room. My mom told me everything looked as usual. My sis took her breakfast and played with my little niece, then she went to take a bath. Later, My mom wanted to get something from the bathroom, my sis replied that she is taking a bath. She didn't like to be bothered when she was taking a bath. We all had arguments with her about how long she took her bath. Then, 10-15 min later, my mom went to see if she could go in, but this time my sis didn't make any sound. My mom started panicking and pounding on the door screaming my sis' name, then my sis-in-law joined her. I heard it and ran downstairs immediately. I told my mom to get the key, but I couldn't get it open rightaway. My big bro tried to kick down the door with no success. We finally managed to unlock the door in maybe 3 min, but it felt like 3 hours. When we opened the door, what I saw I will never forget for the rest of my life. My sis was floating side way in the bathtub. My bro dragged her out immediately and I saw that her lips turned blue already. I immediately started mouth-to-mouth resuscitation even though I had never learn it. I asked my dad to press down her chest. When I was blowing air into her mouth, all I could hear was gurgling sound coming out of her nose. She had no response. I asked my dad and bro to continue. I called 911 and asked them to come immediately. My parents were screaming and crying at the same time. But, I had faith that she could be saved. Not long after, an officer came in, he helped me continued with CPR. He pushed her chest and I kept on doing the mouth-to-mouth resusciation. But, still nothing. Then, a team of paramedics came, they worked on her for maybe 20 min, and I was so calm and collective and able to explain the officer of what happend. Because I felt she would definitely come back to us. Then suddenly, I heard my bro crying because one of the parmedics asked him if we would like a chaplain. At that time, I still couldn't belive that she was gone. They said they were taking her to the hospital. I asked them if she still had a chance. And they told me that there is always a chance. So, once again I regain my faith. I went to the hospital with my bro. The minute we walked in, they sent us to sit in a room and I knew I'm starting to live in a nightmare that will never wake up. The doctor and nurses all came in and started saying sorry. I broke down. I couldn't take it. I was devastated and went a little hysterial. It's not true! No way! This is not happening. No one die in a freak accident like this. My sis was an adult. How could she drown in a bathtub? We all try to stay strong for each other. But, at night, I know my parents cried, I cried even harder. My sis-in-law tried to stay strong because she is 7m pregnant. But, today, my little niece out of no where started crying for her little Auntie. We all cried and my sis-in-law totally broke down. All her strength seemed to evaporated. We all feel like we can still seee my sis everywhere in the house, eating with us, watching tv, playing with my niece, especially arguing with me. I just can't accept that she is gone just like that. I know she still have strong desire to live. She loved her little niece so dearly. She promised to our niece to play snow next week. She was so excited about the impending birth of our nephew. She and I made plans to do all sorts of things of him. OMG, how could she just leave like that, without even a word? How are we going to cope with this. The whole tragedy is just so awful and sudden. I don't have many friends, and I don't want to burden them with the pain that they don't understand. This is the only outlet I can find on the internet. So, I have to talk to someone. I had been taking care of my sis for the last 10 years. We had a long history together. We were like 2 peas in a pod, couldn't live without each other. I promised her that I'll take care of her forever. But, now she is gone and I don't even have the chance to take care of her again. When does this pain ever going to stop. Please tell me. If she got sick or die in the traffic accident, I think I can manage to slowly accept it. But, she died in a freaking bathtub! Why? We love her so very much, how could she been taken away from us just like this. WHY? Please help me. Please.......Please.......Please......
