so sad!!! :(

I got a call from my granddaughter ( sorta- once removed) tonight while I was driving home.
My x-daughter in-law lost her baby! She was due February 8th. She started contractions one night, took a bath to help them pass which they did. Went to see her Dr. the next day and he couldn't find the heart beat! They induced her and she delivered him stillborn. He had a full head of curly hair and weighed 4 lbs and ?? oz. Looked perfect, just small. They're doing an autopsy. If, and evidently it's a big if, he can be embalmed the funeral will be next week. If not( something about him being too small) the funeral will be Sat. or Sun.. I absolutely can not imagine what that must be like. I' m so sad for them! It's just not right for something like that to happen. I just can't wrap my mind around it.

You know, or you may not....once someone gets into my heart I have a terrible time letting them go. Sometimes I just can't. Sometimes I don't want to. Two of my sons have X's and I still care very deeply for them. Can't help it, it's just the way I'm made I guess. So it just makes me sad for her....bless her heart, she already has 6 kids, but what the heck,....what's one more?
I'm just so sad for her.
I was going to buy the material this weekend to make him a blanket.
So sad.

Sorry to hear about that. I can't even imagine how awful it must feel to lose a child like that.

Pups went shopping with his Mom & little Miss S this afternoon & he said that S was telling him about how she is going to have a brother in February. Pups wasn't even sure if his Mom knows yet either. His heart was breaking hearing lil Miss S talk about it. Obviously, he didn't say anything. :(

So sad.
