Comments: My son Anthony Morgan was born on September 22, 1997 and died on January 7, 1998 at his care-givers home. Anthony was a very healthy 3 1/2 month old. My husband, John, and I are now expecting our second child, a girl. She is due on February 25. I have read the articles I have found on monitoring, but we still are both confused about choosing to use a monitor or not. I am very nervous either way at this point. I would like to hear from anyone who has used a monitor on a subsequent child. I love you and miss you my angel Anthony!

Reaves-Margolies (January 13, 1995-April 22, 1995) Love, Peace, and God Bless to those who are/have mourned, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Aliza (See poem below.) Little Angels When God calls little children to dwell with Him above We mortal sometimes question the wisdom of His love. For no heartache compares with the death of one small child Who does so much to make our work seem wonderful and mild. Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold So he picks a rosebud before it can grow old. God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but few To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view. Believing this is difficult still some how we must try The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Good-bye." So when a little child departs, we who are left behind Must realize God loves children, Angels are hard find.

Comments: I have been viewing this web site for the first time today and would be interested in views/comments/information on the following. Whn our baby daughter was a few weeks old - I woke in the night to find her in her cot - completely 'Grey', I pulled her from her moses basket and shouted. Fortunately - she woke after a few seconds (what seemed like minutes)and we are extremely fortunate to have her here today. She was admitted to hospital and kept in for 'test' for a few days, we now have an apnea monitor for her and are very very lucky indeed - there has been no clear medical diagnosis and she still has 'episodes' of this happening. We have been told that apparently some babies quote "just forget to breathe" - I would be interested to know if there is any information on this - and I know we are extremely lucky to have our baby still here - but she is now 8 months old and apparently this may continue until 1 or 2 years old?

I had my tubes tied when I gave birth to him because we thought five was enough for us. We have definitely all been healing at a different pace. Two of my sisters and a sister-in-law all had babies within two years of Dylan's death. This has seemed to help me but has been very hard for my husband. The kids all have gone through the wide range of emotions all at different times. I would like to share experiences with anyone going through this terrible ordeal.

Comments: My first child was born November 29,1997. Jordan Elizabeth appeared to be a normal, healthy baby girl. Ten hours after her birth she stopped breathing for no apparent reason. The nurses were able to revive her, but she was in an irreversable coma due to severe brain damage. She died on March 8, 1998. After second opinions, and every possible test, there were no answers as to why she stopped breathing. Her doctor encouraged us to think of it as a SIDS death even though she does not fit into the normal time frame for SIDS. In April of 1998 I miscarried, and in May of the same year I found out I was pregnant again. That baby is due in a little under 3 weeks. I am very scared, and would love to hear from parents who have endured subsequent pregnancies.

Comments: Our son Dylan died suddenly at six weeks old on Oct. 19, 1998. His death was not ruled as SIDS as he did not die quietly in his sleep. However, the autopsy revealed no abnormalities or cause of death. We miss him terribly, and now that the shock has worn off, depression has set in. The holidays were almost unbearable. We would like to have another baby but are fearful of something similar happening again. Also, I have become very overprotective of my 3-year old daughter. I think it would be very helpful to hear from other parents who had similar feelings but went on to have more children anyway. Please E-mail. Thanks.

Comments: I found your site tonight, and I read alot of your vistor's comments. I, too, like so many others, lost my first child to SIDS. My child died in March of 1988, although it stills seems like it was yesterday. I has since then been blessed with two more children and I love them very much, but I still think about my sweet baby whom I will hold again one day. If anyone would like to talk please email me.

Comments: Hi we lost are Sweet Baby Danika Emily Kay Carnell-Riley to SIDS on Dec. 19, 1998. She was born Sept. 23, 1998. SIDS seems to run in are family. 27yrs ago my parents lost a baby boy to SIDS my brother. My cousins lost there little baby boy to SIDS 2 yrs ago. I told the doctors that delivered Danika about the history. I found out that after she passed away that they were suppost to offer me a monitor. But because the health system has deteriorated so badly. THey don't pay attention to there patients needs. Because they don't care We lost are Sweet Baby Danika. The next time that we have a baby it'll have to be by the only doctor that I trust. And it is one that hasn't delivered babies in 30 yrs. We miss and love are daughter very much something that will never go away. Nor will the hurt and anger that she was taken from us. She was a very happy and healthy baby. You would figure that after 27yrs they would have a cure. They have cures for everything else. Obviously the only people that care are the ones that lose there babies to this tragic killer. My uncle was in a car wreck when he was on his way down for Danika's funeral. He was very lucky that he was not killed. My auntie died of cancer Jan.6, 1999. There isn't much more that we can take right now. It's like there is no god. We love you Sweet Baby Danika and miss you very much Love your Mommy and Daddy for ever and always

Excited and scared. Would love to hear from anyone who is now or has had subsequent children. Gosh I hate that word subsequent, it sounds so cold. I have mixed feelings on apnea monitors and would love to hear advice or feelings from anyone who has thoughts. My prayers go to all the SIDS mommies and daddies and families for a good new year. Let's hope less people go thru this horrible tradgedy this year.

Comments: At this time 12 weeks ago my husband and I were at the hospital holding our sweet, beautiful baby son Michael for the last time. On Tuesday the 12th, Michael will be gone for as long as he was here. I can't believe that we have survived this long. I can't believe the number of people who are trying to survive the loss of their child to SIDS. I'm suppose to have my time and energy focused on a chubby little 5 1/2 month old baby but instead am forced to fill my time with trying to muddle my way through. For all those who have survived and lived to tell the tale, I do thank you for sharing your experiances. You give the rest of us something to look to for comfort and hope, especially all the subsequent babies who prove that not all is lost forever and give us the courage to want to try again.

He left a brother who will always remember him and a mother who carries him in her heart wherever she goes. He brought us great joy and love for the short time we had him in our physical lives. Ryan we love you, miss you and we know that you are in a better place! Our fondest wish is that they find the cause of SIDS so that no one ever has to experience the loss of a child to SIDS again!

The day they said he could come home was the happiest day of our lives. We thought we were home free with no worries. The Dr.s pronounced him healthy as a full term baby. Two weeks after we got home our life was turned upside down. I could use someone who understands the pain. I miss him so much. How does it get better?? Please e-mail.

Comments: Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of my sweet baby Jake's death. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself. I hope I don't get as depressed as I did when his birthday came. I cannot wait for the day someone finds some definite answers to SIDS. I have written to a couple of talk shows asking them to do a show on SIDS but haven't heard anything positive back from them. The Leeza show rubbed me the wrong way as they e mailed me back very quickly with a standard "blow off" letter. I wrote them back asking what could possibly be more alarming than the death of a seemingly healthy baby. And not just a few babies! I also wrote Oprah last May and have not hear anything yet. I'm sure she gets millions of letters every day. At least she did not blow me off. I had my tubes tied the day after Jake was born. After a year of writing and fighting my insurance company, they have, believe it or not, decided to pay to have my tubes reversed. If anyone out there has the same problem as I had, please feel free to e mail me; I hope I can help. I recently read a great book titled "Roses in December" by Marilyn Heavlin. If you get a chance, please read it. A few months back I read "Empty Cradle, Broken Heart" by Deborah L. Davis; another very good book. GOD BLESS ALL SIDS FAMILIES!! MAY WE SOON FIND THE ANSWER AND STOP THE SUFFERING!
