My daughter Ashley was everything to me. She wasn't just my daughter, she was my very best friend. As she was growing up we became close and remained that way. Ashley was diagnosed in 2005 with a brain tumor. It was benign but due to the craniotomies she went through, she had deficits. It never changed her nor the loving way she was. In 2007, Ashley had went through radiation, due to residual tumor that they could not remove. She stayed strong, did well though her pituitary ended up non functioning and she had what they call DI in which she had to be reminded to drink lots of fluid because if she didn't her sodium would act up and she would end up in the hospital. There were some other medical issues that came up but nothing that couldn't be corrected or taken care of. Besides the sodium issues Ashley did fine. It was in Nov of 2009, that she went into the hospital after returning from a University hospital that things went way wrong. The University sent her home with a high sodium in which she had to be rushed to a nearby local hospital for treatment. She got better and was her happy usual self, I had an Uncle pass away so there were two days I was unable to go to the hospital and be with her but every time I called I was told she was doing great. I went up to see her on that Sat. Nov 14th, 2009 and my daughter was lethargic and incoherent. I became a banshee and asked what the heck happened to my daughter and get a doctor in here now. She was wide awake and I wanted answers. Needless to say, My baby girl, passed away on Nov 15, 2009 from an Intra cranial Hemorrhage. What happened, to this day I do not no. I miss her so much and found myself at such a loss for everything. It is so hard to face what has happened and to go on day after day. I do for my other kids, but the loss is so great, I feel lost! I don't feel whole anymore. I feel like I am out in another world. My heart aches to see her, hug her and hear her say I love you Mom. Her smile brightened my day. My days are gloomy now.
