sudden loss of niece

judy1965February 20, 2009

My 28 yr, old niece that I was very close to suddenly passed away on Jan. 6, 2009. At this time, we have no explanation as to what happened, the autopsy report has given no obvious causes of death and we are currently awaiting for the lab work to return. It is so difficult to get a call in the middle of the night with a boyfriend saying that she sneezed and fell to her knees and was dead instantly. Maybe if there were initial obvious findings in the autopsy it would be a little easier to accept, but that is not the case. Is there anyone out there with similar episodes or any advice?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hi Judy

Im so sorry for your loss. 28 is so young with so many things unfinished in your life. I wish your family some answers soon as I believe without those answers, its hard to heal.

That said, I have heard of this a few times before. One lady that I know about had a brain anuerism and the sneezed cause it to rupture, the other was a man and his was a brain hemorrage. (Im unsure if his was also an anuerism).

I pray your family gets the answers they need soon. God Bless.
