19 Sep Happiness’ story
Just when I thought I’d have my rainbow baby after my previous stillbirth, death came and took my rainbow baby. I’m still in shock and I ask myself questions like ‘Could it have been spiritual?’, ‘Could it have been an error from the hospital?’ or perhaps it was the surgery done on a 12 day old baby. These are all the questions I ask myself.Why didn’t the scan see the abnormal intestines if it truly was from birth or could it have happened after birth? I am yet to get the correct answers to why my son Zoey would just get sick and get better but ultimately die after all the medical attention he got. Death is indeed not fair. I pray this phase passes by and things get better. I am so heartbroken…
