Hey everyone I’m still taking my sons death pretty hard I lost him on 05-18-2020. He was born on the 15th of may.
I went in on the 13th for a ultrasound. The tech tells me my fluid is looking pretty low for 37 weeks she suggests I should talk with a doctor. The doctor comes in and tells me she thinks it’s time for me to be induced that same day. So I rush home pack my hospital bag and come back. I’m literally in labor for 48 hours I finally give birth to my son he ends up having to go to the Nicu unit because he’s having troubles breathing. They can’t seem to figure out why he’s having troubles breathing so he had to stay on a cpap,I get discharged on the 17th I get a call on the 18th from the Nicu unit around 11 the doctor tells me my son had 2 seizures I get another call around 2:00 she let’s me know my son is really sick. My heart drops into my stomach I get in my car and go to the hospital I’m rushing down to the Nicu unit.the doctor comes in and tells me my son is having complications and she suggest that if I want to hold my son while he is alive we should go in the room now. The nurses hand me my son I hold him I feel him take his last breaths in my arms. The doctors then tell me a bacterial infection was growing from the samples that they sent to the lab from his blood they let me know they will have the results in a few days about what kind of bacteria it was. I receive a call 2 days later from the doctors and she lets me know it was a Ecoli infection. I’m completely heart broken and confused on how could the infection not be noticed he was having breathing complications and he also had jaundice I feel empty inside. I'm trying to be strong for my other child at home but I'm just so numb inside. I keep asking myself why did this happen
Feel your pain! May God give you comfort. Really don't know what to say.
I also held our sweet boy as he took his final breaths. It is so, so hard. We are over a year out from our baby’s passing. Life does keep moving forward. I promise. Some days and moments are really, really hard but it keeps going. Hang in there. You can get through this. ❤️
