My nephew died this morning and I’m heartbroken over it. He came over for dinner last night with my MIL (he lives with her) and he helped N put the crib together. Kept saying how excited he was for his new baby cousin. Then they went home and two hours later MIL called us hysterical, saying she found him unresponsive in the bathroom and what should she do. N told her to call 911 and we raced over. We live really close so we got there as the ambulance did. They think he took some cocaine and went into cardiac arrest. EMTs worked on him for like an hour before taking him to the ER. They got his heart beating and got him breathing but only via machine and he’d been without oxygen for too long. The CT scan came back this morning with no brain activity so his mom made the decision to let him go. I just feel so awful, it doesn’t seem real. We JUST saw him. He’s lived with my MIL for the past 8 years and N and I have spent a lot of time with him. He was still a kid when I first met him. N’s sister had him when N was like 15 so he was still living at home for the first several years of my nephew’s life too and they’ve always had a close bond. MIL is inconsolable and I know N is devastated. He was 24.
