I just can’t walk by and don’t write anything about what’s happening around me.
My sister in law had a little boy recently 3 weeks ago to be precise, he was born at 25 weeks so he was a micro preemie. He died 2 days ago, in the hospital. i don’t want to write any more details because i don’t want to invade their privacy.
They live in a different country so we haven’t met the little baby, but what happened was very shocking for the whole family. We are talking via Facebook, and i just couldn’t find any words to say to her. What can you say to a mother who’s child just died? I ended up saying that the baby felt their love while he was living and he was happy that little time, and that they have to be strong because their other child (2 years old) needs them. And also that if they need any help we will be there in no time.
The second i sent that message to them i felt like a huge liar, because i think that little baby was suffering a lot, getting drugs and being hooked up to all kinds of machines, unable to breath alone. But i didn’t know what else to say.
Just like now, i don’t have the words. I look at my little boy playing near me and i am glad that this tragedy doesn’t happened to me, because i most likely wouldn’t have survived it. It would be the best if things like this wouldn’t happen to anyone.
