There is a woman that works downstairs in my facility (a large multi-disciplne medical clinic), she is in my Sqaudron so I know her. We had a monthly meeting today and they announced that she had her baby, but she is not doing well and is in the NICU at CHOP. I feel so sad for her. We were due on the same day.
Now onto the people not getting it. They said there is a card to sign and a collection being taken for flowers, etc. I know they didn't do that when Colm died. And I know that they don't see my loss as being as difficult or important as her srtuggle with her daughter. And it makes me angry.
When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7 Sail Back to Me
People who haven't been through a similar loss will never get it. I get angry too but at the same time I try to be glad that they don't have the same perspective as I do because I would never wish it on anyone. Doesn't necessarily make it hurt less though. <HUGS>
Wow, I don't understand that woman not getting it...what the heck.
I know one of my best friends IRL has a mother who had a fullterm stillborn daughter around 2001 and afterward she burned all the pictures and said she never wanted to talk about it again. That has always bothered me.
I would personally be very hurt that they are doing this for this woman but that they didn't do it for me.
