His Child Went Home

This has been a hard week. I'm not sure I can even process my own emotions - yet. I know many of you know or have been there. But not me.

Baby J. was twelve months old. He had been fighting for life since he was born.

I knew the day would come as a Hospice nurse where I would have to care for a child. And that day came.

He looked so perfect and so beautiful. Baby J. His skin was so soft, but pale. And he fought for every breath he took.

I asked God "Why?"

The parents asked, "Why?"

The nurse caring for the baby in the Intensive Care Unit admitted she was not comfortable with caring for a dying baby. She was use to saving babies, not walking them home to Jesus.

Yesterday, I took pictures of the parents and Baby J. Something mom and dad can cherish. Then, we prayed. We shared their son's life.

I walked out of the room and talked to the nurse to make sure she was ok. We tried to look at death from a God-given gift.

Today, Baby J, went home to Jesus.

Today, I cried.

10 little hearts from you...:

It's often hard to lose a patient. I can't imagine how hard it is when it's a child. It sounds like baby N touched a lot of lives in 10 months.

Girl I can not even imagine. The crush the parents feel loosing a child. How at a loss you must have felt not understanding why.
I am glad you were able to cry....He is holding each and every one of those tears in a special bottle. He will never forget them. He sees your heart.
Hugs girl
