Was just thinking of you today and wondering how you are going? I haven't been on here a lot for the past few months, mainly due to the fact I was pregnant again and suffered too much pain to sit too long at the computer. Patrick is now 6 weeks old and a gorgeous little fellow who has fit right in with our family.
Anyway, I hope you are doing okay. I think about you a lot.
I have just read the story about Dylan and I can't keep the tears from flowing. What a beautiful story Gisel. Every moment was precious and even in passing Dylan was beautiful.
I think you were very brave in asking Dylan to let go and go home to the angels. I feel so guilty today because I wish I had the strength to let Jeffrey go. I forced Jeffrey to hang on even though he was more than ready to go home. He had autism and it was difficult to communicate with him. He went into cardiac arrest on 31st August and I had the docs fight to bring him back. He was at Boston Children's hospital till 19th Sept when we flew back to Bermuda. He survived for 54 days and passed away on 12th November. I wish I had told Jeffrey to let go and go home to heaven. He would not have suffered so much. You did the right thing. The poor angel was so unwell. I find it amazing that at Dylan's tender age he knew he was going. I believe God sent that smile to you and your husband to let you both know it was ok to let Dylan go and to thank you both for being loving parents that you both were.
thank you for the inspirational story. It's a story of love..........
I just saw your latest photos of Dylan. My god, even with all those tubes he was just so beautiful, so perfect. He looked so very much like your husband, even at such a young age I could see it!
I am sitting here crying, and my heart is broken for you and for him. How are you doing these days? Is it getting any easier? Do you still have to remind yourself to wake up each day and breathe? I still have my son, and yet somedays I have to remind myself to do just that.
I find myself thinking about you often and wondering how you are going, how your husband and son are coping. I know it isn't much, and I wish there was something I could do to stop your pain and hurt, but I always have you in my heart and my thoughts. I look at my 3 children, including my son who is still alive, and actually count myself as lucky that I am able to do that.
I know it is going to be hard without Dylan in your arms this easter, but I do hope you have peace and joy just knowing that you were blessed to have him in your lives, and he was blessed to have you.
Got to go, crying too much now (maybe it's pregnancy hormones LOL!)
Dylan's pictures are so sweet. What a beautiful little angel.
