Goodbye Baby Liana

Goodbye Liana

Another hard day in the NICU. B&D’s crib mate, opposite side of Alexander, Liana passed away today. It was so sudden and so sad. There was some consolation she was surrounded by family but I still wanted to wrap my arms around her mom who was understandably sobbing. She’d been there for 70+ days. Never got to go outside, probably never left her bed. When we first saw her, she was in the ‘going home crib’, but she took a turn for the worse over the weekend. It’s so shocking to have her suddenly gone. So sad, I’m still reeling.

How heartbreaking. That poor family. Why do babies have to die?

I'm so sorry Lisa. That must be so hard. I know when we were in the NICU, we were constantly reminded that the girls were very lucky. Their neighbors, twins born at 28 weeks, were not doing well with their breathing, and one of them was really sick. There was another baby, whose isolette was always covered, and the parents barely came in. He never left his isolette. The nurses entertained him ... read to him, held his hand ... he passed away 6 months after we left the NICU. He was almost a year old. We have no idea what was wrong with him.

I will pray for the family.
