It was the day after my daughter first week visit when I noticed her breathing was wrong. I knew something was wrong and it was horrible. She was rushed to the ER from the pediatrician a office and from there rushed to a children’s hospital. Her father and I dropped our almost one year old off with her grandparents and rushed an hour away. We waited hours to find out she had a severe case of heart disease. She needed to be medi flighted ASAP but it ended up taking two days. After her heart surgery she got septic shock from having a tube in for too long . She died on her sisters first birthday. Her father and I are young . He’s a pizza di livery driver and I’m a student at college. We’ve been engaged for over two years and waited to have both our girls to have a wedding . Instead we were planning a funeral. It’s the hardest thing we could have gone through together but it ended up breaking us instead of strengthening us. He started to ignore me and I drank a lot. We lost ourselves for four months until recently. I had to withdraw from college and almost lost our apartment cause of our fighting and being too loud. We are in a lot of debt from traveling 7 hours to the hospital where we stayed for two weeks and came home to past due bills and had to get credit cards so our daughter had a home. But we still stood next to each other no matter how big our problems got or when we were so upset we couldn’t get out of bed. I thought We would never get over the loss of our precious newborn girl but then we started counting our blessings.we admire our one year old so much now and I’ve never felt so much love between us three. Maybe one day we will try again but for now we’re concentrating on our daughter and getting our heads above water again. Losing our daughter taught us that family is all we have and all we need. I’d give a million dollars to have her here but I’d also lose a million to know that I still have my fiancé and daughter at home with me forever.
