Re : My heart is heavy today......

<t>Time did help me. The pain is not at the surface all the time now. Francesca's due date, what should have been her second birthday, is two weeks away, and I'm not despondent and savage inside and trying to act civilized and forcing myself to be a decent mother to my living children the way I was ...

Re : Family

I'm sorry, Brianne. No one should act like that. I hope people like her learn compassion, but God forbid, not the hard way.

Take care of yourself and suuround yourself with people who understand. Holidays can be rough.(((hugs)))

Re : er...

<t>I just graduated from NS - wouldn't not have gone if I hadn't lost Francesca. There were bitter days when the loss of her was very strong in my mind and as an undercurrent it is always with me.<br/> <br/> I believe your experience of grief will be a gift to your patients and make you a better nur...

Re : This year sucks!

Been there - husband was laid off just three months after we lost Francesca. Just what you don't need on top of all else. Hugs and prayers that he finds a good opportunity soon.
