Jason and I are being carried through each day by our family, friends, and all of you praying for us. It's amazing. He went back to work today, and my mom will be staying a few more days to help with Zach and keep me busy. Whenever I begin to feel the weight of Reese's death on my shoulders, GOD is good to prompt someone to call, text, email me, or bring someone right into my path to wrap their arms around me.
A few of you have asked what happened to Reese, and I do not mind sharing the truth of her life and death. The doctors believe that the infection I had in May led to infection also going through my placenta and affecting her brain. My placenta was 50 % calcified when she was born which means she could not get everything her body needed from me. Due to this, Reese was born with severe brain swelling and could not breathe on her own. Even though she continued to grow inside of me all summer and everything looked completely fine, my placenta and her brain were slowly being influenced.
All I have ever seen when I look at her is beauty. She is perfect to me and oh so precious! I cannot wait until I see her again in Heaven.
Thank you for sharing verses the LORD places on your heart for us. What a comfort! It also blesses us to hear from those who have walked through the death of a child whether it's been five months or fifty years ago. It's nice to know we are not alone.
These past few weeks we have made a habit of sitting out on our back deck after dinner and enjoying this nice weather until the stars come out. It makes me wish I could sit outside with each of you and talk about the LORD, regular life, and laugh at silly things.
Know I am reading and so enjoy all of your sweet comments. I am completely amazed at the impact Reese has had on many of your lives. Makes me a proud Mama. ; )
