T, thank goodness you and dh were there to offer support. I can't imagine the hurt they are feeling right now...and the emotional pain to which the mom will be awakening.

Hugs to you and to them!

You are amazing. I have just been reading around the boards and see you are in hospital - yet you are there helping others. You are an inspiration. So excited for you and little Casey!

For an update on the family.... The Mom is still on Mag and is really out of it according to the family. DH made a little business card with the foundation information on it so when the family is ready they will be more than welcome. Just didn't think we would have to deal with PE this time, but we are all in a place for a reason and if one little word helped then it was all for the right reasons. My heart truly goes out to them.....
Praying that one of the family members will contact the foundation...
On to going back to sleep....

T, that is such sad news.

Are you ok? Did you find the whole situation very upsetting? I know that we get so gung ho here that you're probably buoyed up on a tidal wave of faith and best wishes. Still, just before having a baby is such an emotional time under any circumstances and you and DH have really worked hard for Casey. I really admire that you were able to reach out and try to help... you have major spine.

We're all rooting for you guys........

My hear truly breaks for this family. they will be in my thoughts and prayers. It's great that you and DH were there to help with this. It's so much more comforting talking to someone who has been through it.

Thank goodness you and your DH were able to be there for this family. Never underestimate the importance of a kind word in such situations. We have had women write us later and say our emotional support here on the board kept them from suicide after the loss of their baby. Even if it feels frustrating that we cannot do more--please know how very much you do. Keep us updated on her and if she wants--let me know--I am happy to call and speak with the family.
