Bhanu,

Thanks for being willing to share. If given the oppurtunity, I will pass on your info. The only update I have heard is that the mom has been released and sent home. Other than that, I do not know how they are doing.

Thanks again

Hi,
I am so sorry to hear about Isaac. I too had early onset and severe pe with hellp, and had my baby girl at 25 weeks - she gave us 7.5 weeks of joy before leaving us. Please have your friend email me at bhanu@instantis.com if she would like to chat as I can also totally relate to her.

Gloria,

wow, you really can relate. all too much i am sure. i would love to pass on your email addresses but i am actually a third person in this scenario. i don't even know how to get in touch with her. if i ever do i will steer her in this direction. i have given the forum sight to someone that i hope will get it to her. i hope it will not be too painful to check this out. i think it is valuable for us all.
gloria, i hope your meeting goes well. i think it is a great step that you and your husband are taking. my prayers are with you. let us know how you are doing!

Hi,

I'm so sorry about the loss of Isaac David. I know just
how this mommy must feel because I just lost my son to
PE one month age (One month and 2 days to be exact).
I would love to talk to your friend if she is interested.
Tomorrow my husband and I will go to our first perinatal bereavement
support group. Your friend may also want to look into
this when she feels up to it. My e- mail address is:
glomor19@netzero.com. She can contact me if she ever feels like it.
I will be praying for her.

Gloria mom to Josiah 11/12/03- 12/4/03 born at 26.3wks PE

As i expected, you guys were great to respond with comfort. this is exactly why i hope she will one day sign on and get to chatting with us all. i have passed along the info so it is in her hands. i was also hoping they could hang in there a bit longer so they baby had a better chance. i have seen many of you had babies early in 20 weeks area. amazing. thanks again

I am so sorry for the loss of their precious Isaac. I am glad that she may be able to connect with others here. Being alone in grief is the hardest thing. There are so many here that will be able to listen and offer help during this hard, horrible time.

Keeping them in thought and prayer...

Alison,
I am so sorry to hear this news, I was realy hoping there would be a better outcome.

I definitely think it a good idea to send this website along. Your family friend is going to have a lot of questions why this happened to her and she will probably be scared to death to get PG again for fear of it happening all over. This is a good support network for that.

Also, I read a book while my son was in the NICU that really helped. It was called "When Bad Things Happen to Good People" You might want to mention to someone closer to this family friend to give it to her as a gift.

Julie,

thank you for your reply. you of all people can totally relate to what clarissa is going through right now. i know it would be of comfort eventually for her to chat with people who have been through the same thing. i hope she checks this out.
