I just found out that a colleague's 2 year old little boy went to bed last night with a fever and was found dead two hours later. Otherwise healthy. BAM! No warning.
I'm left with a sick feeling in my stomach as Addie's daycare calls to tell us she needs to go home because she has a fever. I'm not quite at that "freak out" zone because I know that what happened to his son is so crazy uncommon. But I am definitely in that "imagine if it were me" zone as no parent should ever have to experience such a loss.
And so quickly without warning. How does the world continue to turn?
Time to go home and snuggle with my little girl who isn't feeling well today.
