Boone's Blessing

Boone's Noggin'

  • That unknowing in the NICU is so hard.  It like a very bumpy roller-coaster ride.  Many hugs to you!

    Much Love


  • Thank you for sharing more of Boone's story. I think it is really sweet that you had regular visitors to see him and be able to give you some of those updates. While it did not feel like a true vacation, I am glad that you were able to have some time with your husband. Just sharing space together, those unspoken words, understood glances, and the tears can all help couples feel connected during this painful journey.

    Sending hugs,


  • Hi again. Thank you for sharing your precious baby boy's life with us. I hope that telling his story is helping you in your journey. I hope that your vacation with your husband was a small respite from the day to day.

    Love and Hugs


  • "a series of grief".... that line really resonates with me. It's so incredibly true. And for many families that grief continues.... in many forms. Thank you for being so open about Boone's story and your journey.

    And I'm really happy that you and your husband had some time away. While you both grieve Boone, no matter the place at least you had time to focus on one another and ignore the rest of the world for awhile.

    Hugs and love,


  • Thank you for sharing more of his story with us.  Everything you wrote I can relate too. I remember too being in the NICU and just focusing on when my son would come home and what it would be like. I was making plans in my head never once allowing myself to think what if he doesn't come home.  I had to hang on to that hope because it's all I had left.  We too also took a few days and got away after son passed.  Nicki
