In the early morning hours I was awaken by my partner gasping for breath like he was joking. He was conscious but couldnt speak. I called 911 and the fire department arrived about 4 minutes later. By that time Andre was unresponsive to me and his breathing was very shallow. I didnt know what to do for him I felt so helpless. Those 4 minutes seemed like 4 days. The firemen cared for him until the paramedics arrived. They prepped him for transport and took him to hospital. I sat at the hospital for over 10 hours not leaving his side, the nurse urged me go home and try to get some sleep saying there was nothing more I could for him. And they will call if there were any changes in his condition. All I know is the lymph node in his chest is enlarged; the cause the cause is unknown at this time. My brother is on his way from Toronto and will be here around 5:30. I couldnt sleep and wanted to let it out so I put it here, I love Andre with every ounce of my heart, if I could lay in his stead I would. When I see him lying there I cannot control my tears.
