Our beautiful baby girl

by Gaby

hi everyone. we lost our daughter when she was 3 months old. she had contracted meningitis according to doctors and she was in NICU for almost a week before she died. they also told us that she has been born with a very rare disease which affected the heart and all the muscles, which in a very short time causes the organs to start failing. we had been playing with her saturday night and sunday morning we found her in her cot. everything happened so fast at the hospital, we were so scared when they put her in NICU, all we did was pray. we were positive for the first 2 days and after that the doctors told us she was in a coma, and chances of her recovering were none. we didnt know how long she had been without oxygen and they said that the damage to the brain stem was too bad to heal. she passed away friday night at 20h08.
it was so much to handle i think my husband and i denied it, even during the cremation and service arrangements. i dont wish it on my worst enemy to have to cremate their baby. its been a month and a half now and i still cant handle it. there might be a chance that i cant have any more children after the c-section and its killing me. i cant bear to see people with their babies, their toddlers, i cry thinking about it. i cant get over her, she was the most beautiful baby, i dont know why things like this happen. i am a mess every day of my life but my husband is so supportive. being a mother was the best thing that ever happened to me, all the fear of the birth and having to care for a tiny person didnt matter when i held her. i have so much sympathy and support for anyone who has ever lost a child, especially a baby, it is the worst thing that could happen.

I feel the same pain
by: Anonymous

We just celebrated our little girls 1st birthday by doing a balloon release at her grave because at 7 months old she was taken from us by meningitis, I know the feeling to have your baby gone from being perfectly healthy, my little girl was declared brain dead 2 days after being admitted into the icu but was in the e.r two days before that when we were told she was only teething and there was nothing wrong with her.

I understand the pain
by: Sarah

Hi Gaby,

I lost a son, a twin, at 3 months of age as well. It was on Mother's Day in 1994. He'd be 18 years old today. It was a simple case of a doc misdiagnosing an incarcerated hernia. I'm a nurse and knew something was horribly wrong. He spenta few days on life support in the PICU...I won't go into details but it was ghastly. I was lucky. I got to rock my son into Heaven. He was taken off of life support and placed into my arms as I sat in a rocking chair. I sat with him and I hummed a lullaby to him...telling him how much his brother, his sissy, his daddy and his grandparents loved him. He heard me and he knew how loved he was. He still does as I tell him every day. Your little princess knows too, honey. She knows that you love her and that you'll never forget her. Talk to her, tell her you love her. She hears you. You'll always be a momma...HER momma. Always and forever your baby she'll be.

we love our children.
by: Jackie

Hi my son was born 5 years ago and passed away after 40 hours. It is the worst thing that can ever happen, now 5 years later I have to live with it, but it is painful and sad. I also didnt know if I could have any more children, but I have a 3 year old son now who saved me. My husband and I are separated, times are tough buy I have a happy smiling little boy to keep me going, I would happily adopt, please dont give up, it is life changing and unfair.xx Jackie
