I don't really know how to put this all into words, so please bear with me as I try...
It's been a very rough few days since last week Wednesday when it all started.
But I wanted to say why I have been so quiet and that I just need time and will be back in blog land when I feel I am ready.
A friend of mine, who I gave her baby shower for on the 16th Jan, passed away on the 9 Feb.
She had her baby on the 8th Feb, but there were complications and she developed a condition known as pre-eclampsia as well as HELLP.
So many treatments were given her, but her condition was too severe and early Thursday morning on the 9th Feb, she passed away.
She was only married for just short of 3 years. This was their first baby. She was only 31.
A beautiful, soft-spoken, kind, friendly and amazingly strong person...I will miss her terribly.
So now we have all pitched in to help this poor man with his baby. He has been amazing and coping so well. So bittersweet. He is so happy and proud to be a new dad and so tender with his newborn son, kissing his soft little cheeks and yet you can see the sorrow etched in his eyes for the loss of his dear wife and child's mother.
Yesterday afternoon from 3:30 until 10pm I sat, along with a friend of mine, and make a scrap book album of her baby shower and of baby's first few days for him to take to his/her family who he is going to go and see as they live far away.I didn't know it was going to be so hard but I am so grateful that I could do something that I know will last a long time and bring him good memories as his son grows...
see you all soon....
