Except something has been weighing on my heart. An Internet Weirdie Friend's baby died today, just after midnight she had a cardiac arrest and passed away. Her name is Anastacia Callisto meaning Resurrection Most Beautiful. She was only a few days old, perfect and beautiful in all ways but one, she suffered from a severe diaphragmatic hernia and she had a lot of her lower organs in her chest cavity. It is an exceedingly rare condition. Her mother, Cathi, has shown so much strength, bravery and courage throughout her pregnancy and her post was the one I hoped I would never, ever see. My heart just breaks for her to have to let her baby, her beautiful daughter, go so soon is unbelievably cruel. I am not alone in my feelings, so many of our fellow forum users feel the same as me tonight. I hope our unified feelings and wishes for her is helping her and her family in some small way in their loss and grief tonight and for as long as she needs them. All my love is with them at this time, please if you can find the time spare a thought or prayer for them, there but for the Grace go we all. No one should have to survive their children in this fashion.
