Many of you have read my journal and know about my 17 year old son Reed. Last night I almost lost him too! He has been drinking heavily since his brother died. He ended up in the ER with a .246 blood alcohol level. He almost died! I want to warn other parents who have lost a child and have surviving children. PLEASE guard those that are still living and TALK, TALK, TALK to them about their feelings concerning their sibling that has died. I failed to do this and watched as things got worse for Reed after Rob died. He has lost too! I am guilty of being too wrapped up in my emotions and failed to see his continuing pain. PLEASE pay attention to those living and know they are hurting too. No, they don't like to talk to mom about the lost child because we tend to cry and that bothers them... so what, make them talk to you regardless. Just wanted to pass along a message about this...
