Sad day

I went onto my Facebook today where I am friends with several parents I know thru Ronald McDonald House. We all became a family while staying there.

This morning thru FB I discovered that one of the couples that shared the room next to mine lost their son today. He was almost 5 months old.

I read the post and all I could do was say "no" and cried.

I always worry about the other babies still at the hospital or recently released. Daxton, Payton, Kinsley, Landon, Corbin, JJ, ReAsia, Alanha and more. It is almost like a twisted drug for me, the need to know they are doing good. It is crushing when I hear when they aren't doing well or worse.

It only reinforces that I need to get my nursing degree so I can help, one way or another.

Thank you for thinking of us. We still have you in a our minds daily and we always say a special prayer for all our NICU babies at night. Hope you are doing well and if you ever need anything we are just down the road in Pulaski.

I'm not sure if you guys remember me, but this is Amanda. I met you through PRO while my 24 week twins were in the NICU. For some reason you all entered my thoughts today and I know Drayke's birthday is coming up soon. I remembered that one of the nurses told me you kept a blog so I decided to search for you. I just wanted to check in with you and let you know that you are in my thoughts and I hope you are doing well. Our family is very involved with the MOD and we can always use more help. We are having a preemie picnic this Sunday and it would be great if you could come. You can email me at amandagarcia13@gmail.com Feel free to email me any time! It would be great to hear from you!

Much love and warm wishes,
Amanda
