The hubs was shocked when he received this news last week. 'S', his golf buddy and friend just lost his wife very suddenly. This news shocked me too though I didn't know her very well. I've only met his late wife once, and she was a very nice person. The hubs found out about this bad news through another friends on his WhatsApp group. He cannot get through 'S' on the phone but the hubs knew that 'S' and his wife just welcome their third baby girl, 3 days earlier before the tragedy. Later that day, the hubs learned from another friend that days before, the wife had complained about dizziness. The night before her death, she asked her husband to massage her neck to relieve dizziness. When 'S' woke her up the following morning to breastfed their crying baby, he found out that she was already dead.
We didn't know what really caused her death. That is the only piece of story we knew and the hubs refuse to asked her friend further because he was still in very much mourning. The hubs got the opportunity to pose his curiosity during an appointment his with his doctor last Monday. He asked the doc about what is the major causes of death to a newly delivered mother. And according to the doctor, there are two most common causes: either it is blood clots or retained placenta. I feel terribly sorry for the kids. They are too young to understand. I pray the love of God enfolds this family during the difficult times and helps them heal with the passage of time.

This incident comes to my sense. Being a mother can be the most difficult thing women have ever done. Mother made great sacrifices and expected no credit. Mother go through a risky position when they're giving birth. It's a fighting between survival and death. But it doesn't stop there. Mother continue to nurture her children no matter how old they get. Mother gave the best childhood she could ever possible to her children. She ran to help when you fell, she is the truest friend we have. Appreciate your mother a lot while she is still alive.
