Got a call from Hubby this afternoon, right after lunch. He was using that voice so in his voice message he was careful to say “I’m ok BUt …”
My hubby’s sister and her husband have been married for umpteen years. Prolly 30 yrs or so. They have two kids, both in their middle 20’s. BIL finally retired from the DOT on June 30 - just a couple of weeks ago. He had 30 + yrs in.
So today BIL was piddling around the yard. He got up, walked his regular 3 miles, ate breakfast. He went to go about fooling in the yard while Aunt Sis went to work.
She spoke to him on the phone about 11:00 , 11:30 ish as he took lunch.
Then the next door neigbor spied him lying in the yard about 1 pm and called 911.
I’m still not clear about what happened … heart attack? stroke? but maybe that’s ok too. I’m still just so shocked about it … here was a guy who was in his early fifties maybe … to all appearences the picture of health: slim, trim, good color etc.
The paramedics worked very hard but they admitted that it had been too late after what-ever-had-struck-him for them to help.
This is truly MPSIMS because I’m not sure why it’s important to share this.
I guess the bottom line is, even with all his wackyness, I’m gonna miss Wayne.
