Today is such a yuky dreary rainy day out. Its cold and gray and Tuesdays have already been my "bad days" Not sure why, Im guessing because it was the last day I spent with my son, maybe



and Im waiting for the phone company because my phones echo for the first 5 - 10 seconds of any call coming in or going out.

I just saw this thread, as I came over to post about a family tragedy.

I am so very sorry for your loss, Phishgirl. I remember your username from way back in the day. My heart is broken for you. I can't even imagine how awful your pain must be.

My deepest condolences to you.

Unhappy So so sorry

Reading your post brought tears to my eyes. I can't imagine what you must be going through. Being a single mom of an only child, a boy 18yo, I especially feel bad for you. I am assuming they are doing an autopsy. The only thing worse than loosing a child would be not knowing why. Perhaps they will have an answer for why it happened. Maybe he had an undiagnosed heart problem. I work in cardiac surgery, and used to work in cardiac surgery at a childrens hospital. It is amazing how many pediatric cardiac disorders there are out there, and many don't surface with well defined symptoms until its a crisis. I am imaging that is what happened to him. Again, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Im sure its quite devastating. Maybe you will at least get an answer why to help with closure. Peace be with you.

Thank You for your thoughts.. He passed away a year ago, so the autopsy was done already.

and Actually, No, I was left with a lot of unanswered questions.

The autopsy report said Accidental Death, caused by Acute Pulmonary Congestion. His lungs filled with liquid and blood and he suffocated.

Problem with that is...... NO other organs were effected, He wasn't sick with a cold, a flu or even a headache.. Nothing.. Toxicology report affirmed No Drugs, No Alcohol, No Chemicals.. Nothing, not even aspirin..

I can't even possibly imagine what you have been/still are going through. I wish you all the best and every prayer possible. May you find strength in unexpected places and may you continue to have beautiful dreams of your smiling son.

My DS will be 2 on July 16th, and this is truly a worst fear. The day after his first birthday party last year our home was destroyed by a fire. Luckily we weren't home but the fire chief said that if we were, and our son was in his bedroom that there's no way we would've been able to get to him because the fire started in the kitchen, right under his bedroom and was so violent and spread so quickly. That alone makes me ill anytime I think about it and I thank God every single day. Again, I can't imagine what you're going through but I sincerely hope you're as well as can be. Many, many hugs for everyday!! You and your son are very much in my thoughts and prayers.

so sorry for your loss...

First of all...

Im terribly sorry for this unexpected journey you have been put on. Though I cannot completely understand how you are feeling right now - I can offer my listening ear and support.

My dh and I lost our 5 month old daughter in Oct. 2007. She was our second child...she spent 4 of her 5 months in the hospital with a very rare genetic disorder. The dr's thought she would be just fine - that she would never have any severe problems or delays - that she would just be petite. Unfortunately they were wrong. Our dd was very, very ill. It was so terrible to sit by her bed side every single day - unable to do anything. We couldn't even really hold her without her crying in pain. She spent the last month at home with us, on hospice care. Of course the entire time we prayed for a miracle..but trusted in Gods decision as we knew He loved her even more than we loved her - He created her. She ended up passing away the night before my birthday. I have had a rough time dealing with her death... there are days the pain seems unbearable - like I simply cannot take another breath. On those days I do my best to run to our Lord and also to my husband. If I have learned anything over the past 2 1/2 years it is that everyone grieves differently. We have struggled with our families - and their lack of support. It was like our dd was never here..they never mention her name, have taken most if not all pictures down, etc. This has been so hard. They have gotten mad at us for the way we grieve..and in turn we have gotten mad at them for they way they dont seem to be grieving at all. I think it all comes down to the fact that we all do it differently. I have only seen my dh cry a few times..but I know that he feels he has to be strong for me and our three other kids. I know he misses his baby girl just as much as I do. We used to go to support groups - but no longer do because we dont have a sitter available to watch our other children..so we really feel like we have to deal with it all alone. It has been so trying on our family and our marriage...

I certainly wish I had some good advice for you - or better yet, I wish I could take away all of your pain. I wish NOBODY ever had to walk such a horrible journey like this...unfortunately I cannot do any of this - however I can offer you a shoulder to cry on. Sometimes it just helps to know that you are not the only one hurting..you are not the only one learning to live again. Feel free to send me a message if you want my persnal email. I would love to hear from you...until then, please know that all of us on the Disboards are praying for you and your family!

Many hugs!
Kelly
