Shattered

My sweet little boy Jesse was born at 25 weeks. He lived for 6 hard fought days in the NICU and then died after getting ecoli. My due date is tomorrow and I feel like I did the day he died. Walking out of the hospital after he passed and leaving my precious baby in a bed all by himself was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I’m honestly not sure how I’m supposed to keep doing this. How do you keep moving when you feel like you can’t breath?

  • Hello and welcome to Share. I am so very sorry for the loss of Jesse. I lost my daughter to Trisomy 18, 11 years ago this year. Sometimes the only thing you can manage is simply one breath at a time; one after another. Then you can take life as slowly as possible, be gentle with yourself and allow your heart to heal. Loss is a journey without a destination, and we are here for it with you. Please know you are not alone.
    Love and Hugs
