mother's instinct...trust it

Big news...I was right.

Got all of the results of Caden's autopsy this afternoon, and to cut a long story short, he did have Trisomy 18, a lethal chromosome defect. It is amazing he lived as long as he did and he passed in the most peaceful way possible. I feel such relief it is hard to put it into words.

I will write a full entry with all the details tomorrow, tonight I am emotionally exhausted.

I agree with Becky. I'm glad you have answers. It's not something we all get, answers that is. I can't imagine that it makes losing him any easier, but at least you can identify the reason.

Brooke,
I was just coming to give you some info about parvo virus but it would appear you have your answer. Caden is so beautiful - I am pleased that you are feeling relieved and I hope this helps in one tiny step on the long grief road. take care Ange x

Brook,
I...I too feel your relief. I am glad that you have an answer and don't have to play the why game with that end of all of it now.

Thinking of you and Caden today and everyday.
