I think that those of us whose lives are touched by this disease have a deep and unique love for our children, who have indured the disease with us. My mother survived PE with me, and we have had a close unbreakable bond all our lives. I feel the same for my Emily. It is so unfair that our children have to be affected by PE. We all pray that we can take the brunt of it to protect them completely. Until a cure is found, we all need to be strong for one another.

I so agree with you celticepona- I think I value my girls sooo much more than I would have if everything had gone smoothly. It really brought home their worth to me. Hopefully, by the time my grandkids are born, we'll have a handle on it. That's what we're working for, anyway!

Ann Marie, I'm doing much better, thanks for thinking of me! I really am ok. Occasionally I get overwhelmed with sad feelings (like the night of my original post), but most of the time I am just fine. The memories are always there in the back of my mind, but, unpleasant as they are, they keep me from taking my beautiful little girl and my life for granted.

I agree with Celticepona and Laura - each day with our little babes is a miracle and a gift. I am amazed at how well Maggie has done in spite of all my body put her through. I just hope that I will remember that when she is 16 and out WAY too late with my car!!

It's funny you say that because when I was on bedrest my husband would say boy is this baby in trouble...can't you just hear us saying...when your mom was on bedrest for 3 months do you think she was dreaming of a kid who broke curfew, etc. etc. :)
