"You get what you pay for, but I just had no intention of living this way." -Counting Crows

Why We're Here...

My husband David and I delivered a stillborn Baby Boy that we loved, and wanted. Our first and only son, Logan, had Down Syndrome. Our daughter's smile is a little light in the darkness. She turned one year old three days after our sweet Logan tip-toed away on January 24, 2009. After 2 1/2 years we found out we were having another baby, whom we affectionatly called Rudy. Just shy of 6 weeks we found out Rudy was Ectopic. Rudy was surgically removed on May 26, 2011 delivering another blow to our already broken hearts.

Reminders in the mail

The hospital sent us a card "In Memory" of Logan for the anniversary of "our loss". It was nice. A nice reminder that they gave a crap enough to log it into a computer and let us know that they kept track of it. But I'm tired of getting unexpected reminders in the mail.

It;s such a hard thing, isn't it.

Ours doesn't, and I'm not sure I like that either.

Our doctor remembers and sends a handwritten note, but our hospital doesnt. I agree with Mrs. Spit. It's hard, but I'm not sure that I like that they dont send an acknowledgement... I guess I will know just how I feel if they send something on Bobby and Maya's birthday.

Our doctor called us during our first Christmas without Calvin. It made me feel good that my son was remembered. Whether or not he was looked up on a computer Heather, he was acknowledged and so was your pain. I can understand the shock of receiving something like that unexpected in the mail, I'm sorry it hurt you instead of making you feel good. Hugs

So sorry that it wasn't a healing moment.I am praying so hard this month. I just don't know what to expect to feel or not feel.

I know about the reminders, too. I was in and out of the hospital so many times, I got so many co-pay bills, and insurance statements, birth cert, death cert, coupons (which I still get for formula and diapers), "welcome to your baby" from the town I live in (!!!@&^#$% *&#@%&!!!), etc. I'm so sorry, Heather.
