Baby Shakeel

Hi my name is Shanaz.Baby Shakeel was born 35 weeks prem on the 23 Apr 2014 @ 2.1kg. The doctors said he was fine an he was growing well. Two weeks ago I took him for his 3 month vaccine. He started coughing shortly afterwards an I thought he was getting a cold not thinking at that tome that the vaccine had anything to do wit it. As they days passed he started vomiting an refused his feeds. I decided to take him to the Gp he assured me that my baby just had a cold an will be fine in a day or two. But a day later he wasn't looking well at all so decided to take him to the hospital they put him on oxygen. The doctor said he had a respiratory problem his potassium level as well as his blood sugar level was high. My baby's lungs were expanded his breathing slowed down his heart rate started dropping. I never for 1 second thought that I was going to loose him. I had so much hope that he will recover as he was a little fighter. The day before he died he cried non stop causing him to go into distress. I couldn't keep him quiet eventually called his dad to come to my aid at the hospital. Once his dad held him he became calm, turned his face to look at me then his dad finally looked into the air an smiled and closed his eyes for the last time. I lost my baby that night it is the most inconsolable and unimaginable things I had ever been through. It feels like a part of me has been ripped from my body. I will never forget him an will never wish for death of a child not even on the lives of an enemy. I firmly believe that he is watching over us an Angel in Gods army. Love you always Shakeel

I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful baby. 5 years ago, my beautiful 2.5 year old daughter went to heaven unexpectedly. The pain was and still is unspeakable. I wish that there was something that I could tell you to help you through your grief. Grief is heavy and it touches us in every aspect of our life. I pray that you have a strong support system. Take one day, one moment, one breath at a time.
