On June 12, 1996, a miracle 7 mo term 3.5 oz baby girl entered the lives of many. A fighter, she spent only 6 weeks in neo-natal before blessing the home of her parents. She helped her mom plan a wedding and taught her dad that Saturdays were meant for mom to shop and them to stay home and watch football and play with "MOO" (her favorite toy, a stuffed b&w cow). At the wedding she was the most special hostess, enjoying every moment and every one.
Two weeks later we called 911 at 5:30 am, Firefighters, Paramedics, Medical Emergency personnel - no one could revive the happy fighter. She looked asleep, but she wasn't. There was ten minutes in that morning that led me from hope to knowing that I'd never see her smile or hear her giggle again. I thought those were the worst ten minutes I would ever live through, but the 18 months following have been hell. I want my baby back! And I want an answer as to why she's gone!
SIDS SUCKS, and there is little research into the major killer of healthy babies.
