Monday at work I had to work one on one with her. I must say, when she walked up, my stomach sank a little. About an hour went by, and we had no patients so I told her we really missed her at work the past week, and she said she wanted to take that day off, but had to face us all some time. She started to cry, and I told her I was very sorry for what she went through, and gave her a hug, and told her if she wanted to talk, I would be there to listen. We went about our day and a couple hours later she opened up to me. She told me it was a boy, how long her labor was, what she named him, what the dr's think the cause was. I was so happy she opened up to me. Everyone else avoided her like the plague.

Thank you ladies all so much, I really owe you!!! I feel like you all helped me out so much.

I want to thank you from her for that. I know that going back to work for me after was SO HARD. I'm sure it made it so much easier for her to have someone to talk to and a shoulder to cry on that day. So, thank you.

I agree... thank you! What she's going through sucks so very much, but having a shoulder to cry on, someone to actually listen to what you say without changing the subject, is HUGE.

I am sure to have someone not avoid her and not ignore that it happened means more than you will ever know.

I thank you for her too.

Going back to any situation afterward is hard. It's been 5 months and I still can't even clean our bedroom (because that is where I spent hours and hours a day when I was pregnant with him). It's just hard...

I just don't understand why people avoid someone who's been through something horrible. I know my sister came over the day Bill went back to work after I had Roald and all she wanted to do was go shopping and she didn't mention him allll day and kept saying she knew I didn't want to just dwell on it. But you know what? I did. He's all I wanted to talk about.

I hope everything goes as easily for your friend as they possibly can when something like this happens. If they find the cause that will at least be some healing balm for her.
