It's the 11th again.


It seems that the 11th of a month will always be something to do with Blueberry. I started my period September 11th, I got my first positive pregnancy test October 11th, he was "born" January 11th. Today, March 11th he was buried.

He was buried in a casket with all of the other babies who were born too soon since January 9th. It was a beautiful service, and there were 14 other families besides us. We took some flowers for him, blue and gold carnations. During the service the chaplain asked each family to put a rose in a vase to commemorate the births of our babies, then they gave us each a matching rose to take home.

Please never let me have to see another casket that small.

I am so so sorry. And so sad for your loss. I cannot imagine how difficult today was for you. You are in my prayers.
