My daughter Kim Rumney died suddenly on Saturday 22 March 2014 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. She was 25 years old, in her final year studying Pharmacy at NMMU (Nelson Mandela Metropole University). She was so excited about finishing her degree and moving to Cape Town to join her boyfriend of 7 1/2 years who is studying at Sillwood.
She was going to have breakfast with a friend of theirs and her boyfriend sent her a whats app message at 10h55 and she sent one back, walked up the stairs and dropped dead on the landing at about 11h04. We now know that it was a deep vein thrombosis in her "sore" left leg which broke free and became a pulmonary embolism and she died almost instantly with no warning.
So my darling precious daughter is dead and my heart is broken. I am just struggling to accept the reality because I don't want it to be this way! Silly, isn't it? In the script of life one never even entertains the idea that one of your children will die before you do!
