This has been the most difficult week in my life. Friday all was well. I was having dinner with my father and mother. Saturday I was looking for an apartment and then I got the call that changed my life. My mom said my dad was on the way to the emergency room. I got there. I soon found out he had a hemmorage. He was intubated, unconscience, and on a ventilator. I was told a day latter that he was brain dead. Then after another day and a half on the ventilator I said goodbye. My whole world is upside down. I was planning on starting medical school in the fall. I live in LA and will be going to UCLA so I will be near home to help my family and for them to help me. Yet, I am not sure if I should take a year off. I think I should go to school so I will have something to do and not go crazy. You are all so helpful. What do you think?
