Parenting after a Loss

now we really need good thoughts

the hospital called to tell us hadley's blood work came back and shows signs of a blood infection. they made us bring her back and they are admitting her now. we're beside ourselves. she seemed so much better today. i feel like the worst mom on the planet. i couldn't keep her safe inside of me and i can't do it on the outside either. i just want to crawl into a hole. please keep my sweet little girl in your thoughts and pray this can be kicked with the next 2 rounds of antibiotics they have ordered. and definitely pass that worst mom award. it is permanently mine.

Re: now we really need good thoughts

  • repeat after me...

    "I am a good mom, who loves her baby and is doing all the right things to take care of her."

    I am thinking of you guys, and hope that the antibiotics do the trick.  ((hugs)) 

  • You so are not getting that award....You get Mom of the Day for having to deal with all this. 

    I hope she gets better soon and I will be thinking about you guys tonight.  Please update us as soon as you hear something. 

    Big Hugs to you and Hadley!!!

    I don't know much about blood infections but I do know that this is NOT your fault. Don't do that to yourself! Hadley will be ok and will soon be home with you happy and loved. You are a GREAT mom.

    And please....STOP saying you are the worst mom.  There is NOTHING you could have done to prevent this and this is in NO WAY any reflection on your mommy skills.  Hadley is so lucky to have you, a loving mom who cares for her so much and is getting the best possible care for her.

  • Oh honey. Had you known how to prevent this I know you would have stopped at nothing to do so. Don't beat yourself up! Kids get sick. Good parents recognize there is a problem and get them to the Dr. So I'd say you're a darn good mom!

    ((HUGS)) and prayers!

  • I'll be thinking of you guys.  I hope Hadley gets better ASAP.  And you're a great mom--this isn't your fault. 
  • You are a wonderful mother. A bad mother wouldn't care to take her dd to the dr, much less the hosp.?

    I hope she feels better soon. ?

  • Thoughts and prayers that she gets well quickly! 

    you are definitely not a bad mom!

  • I'm so sorry May.  I can't imagine how frightened and stressed you must be.  I believe Hadley will be ok (I know it sounds trite, but I just have a feeling).  Take care of yourself. 
  • May, in NO WAY is this your fault! Kids get sick. Don't even think about blaming yourself. Just focus on keeping sane while you help Hadley get better.

    I'm thinking of you both and hope we hear a happy update soon.

  • ((super big hugs))
  • You are not a bad mom. I am so sorry you are going through all of this. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Big Hugs.
