My son Michael was born Feb. 15th, 2008. He was born with a rare chromosome deletion and spent his first 2 months in the hospital. During his first year, he was in and out of the hospital 3 times. On January 28th, he had a seizure that caused him to go back into the hospital. He later died on Feb. 1st. Exactly 2 weeks from his 1st birthday. So I say again ladies, hold on you your little ones. Hug them constantly, and tell them you love them 100 times a day! It is an aweful thing to lose a child and I hope that none of you ever have to experience it. Your children are the same age as my Michael and you will get to watch them grow up and live their lives. So please, NEVER take that for granted!!

Jennifer,

I cannot even imagine the pain you must be going through. Thank you for the reminder to treasure every moment. I guess we never really know how long we'll have them, do we? They are such gifts. Your family is in my prayers. May God comfort you with His strength and wisdom. He lost a son too :'-(

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You and your family are in my prayers. My husband and I lost our twin sons who were born prematurel on April 23, 2004. They died less than 24 hours later. I know all too well the pain of losing a child.
