I have been so consumed by my daughters passing that I haven't written a blog on my Very active two year old Jadon... Jadon was born 5 1/2 weeks early he was 6'2oz yeah big premmie. He struggled to breath and was place in the NICU for a week. He came just in time for one of the worst hurrican seasons florida has ever had, Hurrican season 2004. Jadon was born three days before hurrican Charlie, he was in the NICU at the hospital and I had already been released.. So we slept in the waiting room so that we could be close if need be. Windows were busting out on the maturnity floor (where the nicu is also located), are car windows got blown out. When he was released we had no power. Then a week or so later Frances came, my family put us on an airplain to memphis because this hurrican was going to be really bad. YES Jadon went to graceland at three weeks old. He is our hurrican baby. Ashma is the only complication that Jadon faces now due to being premie. Actually if you look at him today you sould never guess he was a premie. He is 36 inches and 31 lbs (the size of most three year olds). He wear a size 9 shoe. He is really all and has really big feet. He realy keeps me going sometime. I have always been know as a very patient person but it does take a two year old to know just how patient you are. He went through some funny stages when I was pregnant with my daughter, he even started hitting me. I always thought kids who hit had to see hitting, yet my sone had never seen hitting and he hit anyways. Everyone askes how is Jadon, I tell them he has no clue, never really understood the concept of me being pregnant. Yet about a week after my daughter passed he did come over and pick up my shirt and say "baby", it broke my heart and took all I had not to cry infront of him.... I simple told him his baby doll was in his room and he went and got it. He really has been my rock. Amazing isn't it that the smile of a two year old and help mend a broken heart. THe I love yous at night, and the "In a minute" i get when I call him into the room... Or him trying to count to 10 as we have been teaching him. I had a necklace made with a little bit of my daughters ash, there are times he will sit on my lap and just hold the charm that the ashes are sealed in almost as if he know the importance of the necklace. He really is an amazing child. With more energy than a whole army combined, well more energy than I have thats for sure. I guess that why he had to come in the middle of the busiest hurrican season floridas ever had... he is my little hurrican.
What sweet pictures! A little hurricane indeed! You must have been so scared during the time he was born and the few weeks afterward, I can't imagine what you must have gone through.
I too lost two preemies, and my survivor often gets me through the times when a rough day is thrown my way.
First of all, Welcome to SHARE!!! I am so sorry for the pain you having to endure. Hugs to you my friend. I hope you continue to blog so we can be here for you!!!
Holding your hand,
What a cutie. You have some stories to tell him when he gets older. That year was the worest. I am glad that you all made it through without being harmed.
