One year ago today I was admitted to the hospital. Felix was already gone.

    Oh darlin. . .I meant to say something earlier. But here I am now. Telling you that you and yours are on my mind. I’ve admired the way you’ve chosen to honor the memory of your son.

    Although I only know you through your blog, I have great admiration for the way you have handled the very difficult situations you’ve faced this past year. You & the Little Man & Felix are in my thoughts.

    Thank you for talking with me about losing Felix at the CW gathering. Such fears and losses mothers experience. (One wonders sometimes, why must it be so hard? And so sad? sometimes: to procreate.) I hold hope for making sense of it all, eventually.

    I was struck, when talking with you, with your warmth and kindness and empathy. In a perfect world, people like you would never suffer. I am sorry.

    Every time I went to post a comment to this yesterday, my computer kept on re-sending me to an anti-spam website or something. I almost picked the whole thing up and threw it across the room.

    Sharyn, I didn’t even “know” you as I do now (and that would be by comments, but at least it’s something), and your loss made me cry. So seeing this made me extra-cry. Take care of yourself.

    I am so sorry you had to have this painful anniversary. I don’t imagine there are many things harder to go through. I wish you continued healing and good times with the Little Man.

  7. Thanks all. I made it through the weekend all right. Had plenty of distractions to keep me occupied and now the little man and I are going to be full steam ahead.
