CrazyWidow... You are the second person to mention Hyla to me. How would I find her on here? I will check facebook. Thank you so much for the hugs! Today was not a good day.

MissHim-Ugh, and hugs hugs hugs.  How can we help?  I suggest you connect with Hyla Molander on here and on facebook-she too lost her husband while she was pregnant.  I am embracing you in my heart today.

You'll be in my thoughts MissHIm11. Please take good care of yourself. God bless you and your family.

Hello everyone. I am a new widow. My husband passed on March 12 suddenly in our home. He was only 29. I am still waiting on his cause of death. I hope that finding out what happened will bring me peace. I am not able to comprehend how this happened. He was just here!! He even asked me out on a date for that Saturday night. Just an hour before he collapsed he said he wanted to buy a swing set for our 14 month old daughter and then he said, "I want us to date more" so I called my mom to babysit. I am also 7 months pregnant. He was holding our daughter when he yelled for me to help him and I found him collapsed on our bed. I still can't believe it. How did this happen? Why did this happen? 

I started seeing a grief counselor last week. My next visit is tomorrow. I just can't seem to get the image of him out of my head. My heart is broken. 

I look forward to learning from all of you.

Krusty & Wendy-I believe a pulmonary embolism is what took my husband, amidst his battle with Angiosarcoma.  Glad we're here for one another.

Welcome Goldie.

Thanks, CrazyWidow!  I think I'm getting to the point in my recovery that what I need most now is practical advice on living as a widow/widower, so this board will be a good thing for me.  I think this is where I'll unleash all my weird dating questions that cause my friends to say, "Well, I don't know how it works in your situation, but..."  LOL

Welcome Wendy-I read  your introduction on the forum and I just think it's amazing what you have done to "reinvent" yourself.  Glad you're here!

Thanks Peter.  I'm a December b-day, so not the oldest.  Yes!
