Of course I would try to prevent Ro's passing...well the disease that killed him, I guess. Other than that, I believe what happened to me in the past made me who I am today.

Well we have no idea where Landan got Meningitis from, but if I could go back in time I would want to know where he got it so we never took him their. And I would have taken him to the hospital the night before and hopefully they would have caught it sooner.

My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.

I'm not really sure what I would change because with Drake having a genetic disorder there wasn't really much I could do about that except possibly having him with a different man. I used to with I could change that but now I don't (on most days lol).

There's no way I could have saved Calypso so if I could go back in time i would FORCE them to let me do for her while she lived.

If I could change anything I wouldnt be posting here, I would have made those nurses do the propert bloodwork somehow, if they had of done the bloodwork and found that I was a group b strep carrier maybe things would have been different and Rennon would have had a better chance

One of the lessons that I've learned in grief is that you can't change anything. I've thought of it many times, and I have a laundry list of answers, however, I'm in the part of my healing that I no longer think retroactively.

Manda,
I'm sorry you feel that way. My grief counselor tells me it's not living retroactively, it's remembering a significant and severe loss in your life and it's always ok to grieve. Unless you feel your grief is running your life, than you may be getting depression.
I will always remember my son. None of us can physically go back in time, it was just a hypothetical question. And for me, if I could go back in time I'd love to see all of my deceased family members just one more time. Not to try to stop their death, but to remember just how much I loved them and still do love them.
That's just my opinion.
Michelle

I would have done everything possible to stay pregnant, even for just one more week, then Iris might have been strong enough to pull through
