I lost a wonderful friend today...
      08/19/08 07:03 AM

Tyrone had been fighting what I thought was a cold for a while. My good friend didn't like hospital, plus he was self employed with no insurance. I had just called and left him a message on Friday to please go because he sounded horrible. He didn't return my call. Around 1 am on Sat, my best friend, who is Tyrones cousin, called me and told me he had fell down the 2 story stairs in his home, causing the alarm to go off. The police came and rushed him to the nearest hospital. He was bad off with bloob pressure of 190/160, temp of 103, his lips were cracked and bleeding and he had lost his sight. They say he was talking out of his head, but that he said that I had called him and told him to go to the hosipital, then he said "I guess I made it" and passed out. Come to find out he had meningitis and it was in his blood. He was on life support and because Im waiting to get a new new heart, I couldnt go see him.

I didnt know he was HIV positive.

He died today at 4pm.

He was 37.

He was the greatest friend you could have, making me laugh when I wanted to cry.


I ask God for strength, because my heart is hurting and I dont believe that getting a new one will help at all.
