Lost my baby boy 2 weeks ago

by Kelly

My baby boy, Adam, died 2 weeks ago today. He was 2 days shy of turning 2 months old. Adam had a cold and coughed up some phlegm and swallowed it. He choked and stopped breathing. My husband attempted CPR but was unable to revive him. He called 911, and Adam could not be resuscitated for about an hour.

Due to the lack of oxygen for so long, his brain began to swell and he went downhill very quickly. We were told that Adam did not have any brain activity other than breathing (which he was barely doing on his own) and would not recover.

We made the decision to remove his breathing tube. Less than 3 hours after doing so, our sweet Adam passed away. We miss him so much, and this is the worst pain I could ever imagine.

Similar to you, my son was one day shy of 4 months. After about half hour, his heart came back. We were flown to Phx CHildrens Hospital and told him he was in a coma-like state. 2 days later they took of the respirator and never took a breathe on his own. They pronounced him dead at that moment. You sound so strong. One day we will be reunited we us too are received by our Heavenly Father. God Bless you and your family.a

I'm so sorry

I could not begin to imagine the pain you are going through. As a father of a 5 year old and as an Uncle, I can relate how precious your baby was to you and am fighting the tears as I type. My parents had their very first born die of kidney complications at 2 years. It was devastating to my mom and Dad. As if that wasn't enough for my mom, my older brother committed suicide last year at age 37, suffering from deep sadness nobody realized due to he always made everyone laugh. There is one huge hole now that will never be filled again.

Find a way for the healing to begin like my Mom and Dad did...twice. It will be the most difficult thing to do though it needs to be done. God bless you and your husband and your little one who is above us now.

I am deeply sorry to hear about the loss of your precious baby Adam. My heart goes out to you. Nothing worse than losing a child at such an early age. The pain has to be overwhelming for both of you. It's good to write your feelings and read what others offer. Believe me it does help when you think you can't go on. Adam is with the angels and my prayers tonight are for all of you. Remember to take it slow, one day at a time.
