Feeling emotionally exhausted today.
Mom called me this morning; my aunt called her last night. Her boyfriend had an aneurysm, and brain scans showed no function. He had called and asked her to come down (they live in the same apartment building) because he was having awful headaches, and shortly after she got there he collapsed in her arms. Mom and Dad drove down to be with her today, and shortly after they arrived he was removed from life support.
Later this morning I learned that a classmate from one of the high schools I attended (my family moved a lot; I went to three high schools) also passed away today. He was 41 and had a young daughter.
As much as I enjoy the festivities that this time of year brings, this part of it really sucks.
