We lost our daughter at 9hrs old. She was born at 27+1 and weighed 1lb 6.5oz.276 of 365 miracle baby
Would you like to use this drawing (FINGERSattached)? A colleague drew it for me, based on a photo of me holding Frankie in my arms about an hour after she'd died. She only wore a dress when she was dead :o( She'd just had a loose nappy and a knitted hat whilst she was in NICU. I really would have liked to have dressed her in a nappy and little white tights under that dress :o) You just want to keep them warm and safe (silly!).
I've written an information sheet on loss, not necessarily about premturity, but some of it might interest you. I wanted to prevent other bereaved parents having regrets like me. I was (and still am) most upset that I was denied the opportunity to bring Frankie home - I was told it was illegal (it's not) and even my funeral director said, if I'd called him and told him I had a dead baby at home, he'd have called the police. All I wanted was for our daughter to spend one night in our house in her moses basket. Instead, she stayed in the morgue and family couldn't visit her. Aside from that "issue", the bereavement care was FANTASTIC.
I have nothing but praise for the NICU staff. I don't even care that I had to travel 70 miles to get there, that there was no space in my local hospital 10 miles away, that my husband commuted 1,000 miles in 7 days to visit me whilst they stalled labour. All we cared about was that there was someone who could (try to) save our baby's life, we'd have travelled the earth to achieve that.
I think, unless you've been there, you think that the shortage of space is down to lack of funding for equipment. But in our experience, they told us it was down to shortage of staff - the burnout and turnover rate is enormous, most staff there only lasted a year. They had the equipment, but cot space was limited (to 5 I think) because they only had the staff to handle 5 extrememly premature babies at a time. They truly were wonderful people and I thank them with all my heart for giving us 9 hours with our daughter. I know that in Spain, they don't consider babies under 27 weeks (I was admitted at 26+1 and she was born at 27 plus ONE HOUR!).
Anyway, if you want more, please let me know. I could talk for England about her, about that time, about the 22 months since and how I still cry for her.
Friends were in church this morning for the first time with their new baby. Jack was born 9 1/2 weeks ago, and still has 3 weeks to go until his 'due date'!! Absolutely amazing miracle - thanks to God and the staff at the Women's Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital. Jack went home from hospital during the past week. His parents wrote on his facebook page, "Jack was born on Thu 29th July weighing 2lbs 11.5oz (born at 27 weeks and 5 days). From week 16 the most optimistic doctors told us he had a 1% chance of survival. Jack is a miracle."
Shoe is cartooning at its best. The strip captures issues and ideas that speak to a wide and diverse audience. It conveys volumes through its humor and simple lines. The First 27 Years of Shoe: World Ends at Ten, Details at Eleven exhibits that clarity and cartooning essence in frame after frame, strip after strip. The first Shoe collection of Jeff MacNelly and company's works since 1994, this book is a delight from Dave Barry's foreword to Mike Peters's "backward."Edited by Chris Cassatt and Susie MacNelly, who along with Gary Brookins keep Shoe as lively, vital, and vibrant as Jeff did until his death in June 2000, The First 27 Years of Shoe contains hundreds of cartoons from 1977 to the present. Plenty of MacNelly extras pepper the book, including actual (and critical, of course) notes from Jeff's teachers, as well as photos and warm remembrances of the creative genius who won three Pulitzer Prizes for his editorial cartooning and two Reubens, cartooning's highest award, for Shoe.Best of all, though, The First 27 Years of Shoe includes just that: year after year of Shoe, Perfesser Cosmo Fishhawk, Skyler, and Roz-along with Senator Batson D. Belfry, Irving Seagull, Wiz, Loon, and more-squawking, diving, and flying hard through life's ups and downs. Through the decades Shoe has proven both successful and memorable, a tribute sure to be shared by this MacNelly collection.See also:
