Default A wake up call....

Oh no, Ive been smacked sideways :-(

My Nephew, only 26 , died this morning from a rare blood disorder called aplastic anaemia.

Life is short, folks, enjoy and savour every moment.

Thing is, I am working in Dubai, and he lived in South Africa. His dad (my brother) is there and I need to fly down there soonest.

Thank you everyone.
We'd sort of grown apart a bit lately. But I was very involved in his life from birth to about 17.

Of course, I am travelling (8 hours flight) to be at the service, and to support my poor brother. Can you imagine losing a child?

I dont even WANT to think about how I might feel if it happened to my lil boy - I probably could not carry on, actually.

I live in the UK, my nephew was in South Africa, his dad lives in Thailand. I have another brother in Australia, and we will all be in Johannesburg for 2 weeks, together again as brothers, for a while.

it will be nice to see them, of course, but the circumstances....

My condolences...
Take care on your trip.

If you're looking for a distraction during your trip, see if there's a Chix with Stix show.

I might just check out chix with stix, thank you !!


Gad, I need my strength. I'll be shoved together with a lot of family, with whom I have a strained relationship. I'll have to be really strong, and remember this occasion is not about ME, its about my brother and his loss.

And I hope I'm strong enough to keep my mouth SHUT when the family is together. Its been hard enough to stay off facebook for a few days.

Eh... when the family kicks in, it probably won't be as hard as you think. So sorry to hear about your loss. Hang in there. Life is, indeed, short.
