Re: October 11, 2011:

Thank you all.


Last night my son woke up in the middle of the night crying for his brother.

I wish my 2 year old could understand fully what is going on. Poor guy just doesn't know anything other than that brother came out of mommy's tummy and went to sleep and then went away and he wants to play with him SO much.

He carries around a stuffed angel and calls it brother and asks me to swaddle it and shares food/toys/drinks/etc with him and plays dinosaurs or cars or blocks with him and tucks him into bed, etc. He even sleeps with "Bubber" tucked against his chest. Its absolutely heartbreaking



Also---the thing that keeps amusing me about Deagan is the size of his feet. Those things were huge for such a little guy

Re: October 11, 2011:

He does have big feet!!!
I'm really impressed how good he looks. I thought babies born that early looked A LOT different!

I'm very sorry for your son! That's really heart breaking. I hope he understands with time, and his brother is ALWAYS there with him, just the in the way he can understand right now!

Do they have any reason why you were not able to carry? If you try again, is it preventable?

I know! He had CLOWN feet!

And as for him looking good, the doctors and nurses were all really shocked too. And that his facial proportions had gone to normall-baby proportions (no big forehead, etc). And they said that usually baby skin at that gestation is paper thin and tears easily. Apparently, he was a VERY tough guy in every way. Even being physically tough enough for us to poke at for 5 hours after he passed.

That's my tough guy!

As for what caused it, its undetermined. I'll know more about their suspicions after I meet with my doc next week.
