Skyla's Results

Today i rang Skyla's pediatrician to see if her autopsy results were in. He told us the main reason she passed away was from a Severe Pulmonary Hypertension episode which then caused her to go into Acute Heart Failure. He said her Lungs were small but not small enough that they were incompatible with life. Her Lungs showed patches of infections but not from a new infection. They were still healing from her older infections. It showed that she didn't have severe reflux. Her Kidneys were fine but her Liver was very swollen but that would have been caused by her Cardiac Arrest because all her blood was rushing to try and save her brain and heart. We wont get the final report until September i don't think. It will go into alot more detail and we will be having a meeting at the hospital so they will go through everything with us then.
Today i made an appointment to go and see a councillor, don't know how it will go but i guess it couldn't hurt. Last night i really lost it. I was in bed watching TV and i just started bawling my eyes out. I must of cried myself to sleep because next thing i knew it was morning. I wish i could dream about her. Instead i re-live the day over and over and over. The worst day of my life. Friday 13th June 2008.

Prayers need for my friends baby ZAC. He is in ICU where Skyla was. He is a very sick little boy at the moment. He has Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome. He has No immunity and a blood disorder.

As a Mom of a CDH Angel for almost 9 years - I can tell you it gets easier. Councling can help - and you are not going through or doing anything unusual. Sometimes you need to just "loose it" to gain a bit of control again.

Be kind to yourself - and remember Skyla is always in your heart. I know it hurts so bad right now. Keep your eyes and heart open and I hope Skyla sends you a sign.

With thoughts and prayers & sending you Cecilia blessings,
