A friend of mine from my local Mom's Club and my bunko gals lost her daughter last night. I don't know the full story as of today, but her one year old daughter (who happened to be a twin) drowned in the bath tub last night. Like I said, I don't have the full details, but I will say that I'm completely shocked. She is a great Mom and a really fun-loving, caring woman. She is the last person on earth I would have thought would lose a daughter to a bath tub drowning. It just goes to show that things happen and that you just never know when your last day here on earth will be. I can't even imagine what she is going through today. She and another friend of ours is up at the hospital still from last night. I don't know why or what they are doing there still, but they are up there. I feel horrible for her, her husband and three other surviving children.
**ETA: 13 month old Mallory did indeed drown by accident. Mom was putting the brothers pajamas on and getting them ready for bed when the toddler went into the bathroom where the tub had not emptied of the water yet. She must have fallen in and drowned. Her mother found her and performed CPR on her, but to no avail. The family has not returned to their house after the accident and probably will not for a while. I feel so badly for them. My constant thoughts linger to them during the day. I can't get them out of my mind. Prayers and thoughts for them during this difficult time.
