Angel Elli Reed

It is such a sad day for me. I came home from college and thought I would check in on everyone and clicked on Elli's blog to see that she went to heaven this morning. She fought so hard for her 20 days of life. Please pray for her family and the healing of their loss. It is so hard not to get attatched to these little hero's when I have spent so much time with Carson at Children's and have met some of these wonderful famlies or just heard about them through others. I will post tomorrow. I'm at a loss of words right now. I'm sure that Cassie and Brian could find comfort in words from everyone. Just click on Elli on my sidebar.

So very sad. My hear aches for her family!

Kaden and Angel Ava's mommy said...

It's horrible and breaks my heart. I actually went to work and told some of my friends there about her. I told them that I don't know if I can handle seeing another baby pass away. I grew up never seeing or hearing about things like this, then after having Kaden and Ava it seems like that is all I know. I can not believe how often things like this happen. It's kind of like our family is apart of this huge family that goes through such difficult times. I feel like I know more babies who are born fighting for their lives then I do otherwise. I am glad that I have people to relate to and such a wonderful support system, but days like today just bring back horrible feelings for me. You are right, I couldn't help but think of Ava and all that we went through with her. Thanks for thinking about me as was very, very sweet of you.

Oh my goodness. I agree with Amy its seems that since Rhett has been born this is all we know, is little ones fighting to be here, and many that are called home way too early.

It breaks my heart. I can't belive how I never knew about anything like this until Rhett was born.

On the positive side though, I am blessed to know so many strong wonderful people, both children and parents.

I will stop by their blog and send them our condolences.
