is to lose your own child before your time.
John Travolta has lost his son two days ago in Bahama while vacationing there. I don't know the actor personally, but I feel so terrible and sad for the family. The pain and sadness that they are going through must be tremendous, especially it happened right after New Year's. It definitely is not a way to start a new year. Whether it be God's will or fate, it still doesn't do justice that a parent or parents to lose their child. It is just not fair.
My husband JT told me about it first saying, "John Travolta's son died after having seizure."
I said to him, "Oh no... That's terrible! He can't die from Seizure, maybe he hit his head or drowned while in the bath tub or water or something..." And sure it was, we learned that he had a seizure and hit his head in the tub. My heart fell!!!
Some of my readers already know that JT has suffered from a seizure disorder for the past five years. He hasn't had any episodes for a year now (knock on wood), but I know how scary it is to have seizures. I am the only one who have seen my husband having seizures via live. One time, he hit his head at a deli in NY while we're having lunch and had a seizure there; he bled like a pig and I honestly thought he was going to die.
I don't hide that JT has seizures nor my husband. He is pretty honest about it, so that people can help him if he has seizures. Some people may look at it differently, but I strongly believe that there is nothing to be ashamed of.
John Travolta's son, Jett was also suffering from seizures number of times, his parents and family say due to his condition called Kawasaki Disease or some people (including doctors who specialize in seizures, autism and Kawasaki disease) believe it is from autism. When I looked at the video clip from X17online.com, I think I agree with the people who believe Jett might have had autism.
I can see from the clip that the family is very loving and caring people who are committed to their children. The love and devotion that John and his wife Kelly have for their children exuberate from the photos or videos that I have seen many times before.
Your child will always be your child even they grow older. And I can't even comprehend the pain that people must endure when they lose their own child. It is terrible that they have to grieve their son's loss in front of millions of people, but I just hope the Travolta family finds comfort in their son's memories that he left for them and find peace and move forward, one day at a time.
*** On a lighter note, we took these two pics using my blackberry (resolution sucks, sorry!) 10 minutes before the clock hit midnight on the Eve of New Year's. JT and I weren't getting along that day, but in the end, we all decided to smile for camera. LOL. We watched our girls danced away into the New Year's watching various TV shows broadcasted from Time's Square in NY and L.A. We enjoyed Japanese tradistional New Year's Eve feast that include Sushi, Misoka Soba (Japanese noodle to eat for longevity) and sake and white wine. We really had a nice New Year's Eve as a family. I hope that we have a better year than 2008 and I will do anything to achieve it!!
Happy New Year, Everyone!!!
