My name is Angela. I'm twenty-four years old and I have a four year old and two one year old daughters. They are my world ... but, unfortunately my twin girls started out as triplets. Baby B of my girls died at four months in the hospital from non-compaction cardiomyopathy. She stayed in the hospital the whole four months, and I would go to and from the hospital seeing Angelina (Baby B) and seeing my other two premie daughters Alexis and Raiyan at the hospital. It was very hard for me, especially since I had to explain the situation to my four year old, who was three at the time.
That might have all be jumbled up and might not have made any sense, but I get upset when I talk about it. I joined this group to see how other mothers cope with the loss of a multiple. This was the first group I found, and I don't care to look for another one, so I hope I'm not making anyone mad or upset by joining this group - but I've never been part of a group like this and I would like to read how other people feel. This was last year. November 14th, 2008 ... I've been dealing pretty well, but I have bad days sometimes.
Thanks for reading,
