My 27 yr old son suffered a sudden death incident 2 weeks ago, we were in vegas for my daughters wedding. During a pre-wedding party, my son suffered an unexplained sudden death incident. I was there holding his hand telling him to fight during this time. after a week in the hospital they have no explaination why his heart quit, He was fitted with a combinatiob defibrillator/pacemaker. We have been home about 10 days now and went for a doctor visit yesterday. They told us it was a miracle he lived, almost all cases like his the person does not pull through. Then in the same breath the told us he needed open heart surgery to correct a leaky aortic valve, repair his pulmonary valve and map the area of the heart that was damaged during his sudden death. I have always been the strong obe in the family, everyone comes to me for support. But this time I have having a hard time coping. I wake up everynight at 1:48pm and toss and turn feel anxious, like I want to cry, then around 5am I am able to get back to sleep. (This was the time frame where my son was in distress). I have asked family for help or just to listen, but they say they don't know how to help me. I feel like crying (but I hold back) I feel lost. If anyone has a recomnmendatuon I'm open to help. I know I need help understanding why I feel like I do
