Today was Eloise's due date but she has already been and gone. Three weeks now. Sometimes it doesn't feel real - a bad dream that we can't escape from. There is no rewind in life, you can only push forward and try to make things better.
Eloise died at around 8:30am on the 16th of October, just 10 days after being born. Her heart stopped and she passed away in Stacey's arms while we both held her. We knew it was coming, it was just a matter of time.Read More
Last Sunday, the 6th of October, Eloise Woodrow was born by emergency caesarean. We had run into a few speed bumps along the way during the pregnancy so we knew there might be some issues when she was born. They had found she was small for her gestational age and also had a VSD (heart defect), this kind of thing, we didn't find out till later, can be linked to chromosomal issues. The most common issue being Downs Syndrome. There are also two other chromosomal issues, T13 and T18, both which have grim outcomes. It was fine, we told ourselves, we can live with a child with Downs, we have known and been friends with plenty of Downs children it wasn't really a concern. In the end the chance of T13 and T18 is so rare that it isn't going to happen to us. Well it was nice to believe that.Read More
