Tragic, cruel world. It really isn't fair.

On Thursday night last week my Godson was born; Sam. In the early hours of Tuesday morning he died. His mother fed him at midnight then got up again at three to feed him again and he was no more.

It isn't fair.

I don't know how to process information like this. It's not fair. It's cruel. It's inexplicable.

I am so sorry to hear that. There is nothing I can say. It is just inexplicably and horribly cruel. Thinking of you.

Home Office Mum said...

That is so, so awful. I can't imagine what Sam's poor parents must feel. My deepest sympathies to you.

Totally cruel and inexplicable. I am so very sorry....

Thanks Mud.
Home Office Mum - she is a single parent which must make this whole thing so much harder as there is nobody to share your grief with, or to help and understand as completely as you do. I feel helpless in the face of it all, and he wasn't my baby. How must she feel?

It is so devastating! I'm so sorry! I'm not sure what she feels, but I do not think there is anything worse than to lose your child! Bless you all. Ciao. Antonella

So very very sorry. You are right, it is inexpliable. Thinking of you and his parents.

Oh....
Poor, poor you and even poorer poor she. That is just about the worst thing that could happen.
If you or she needs a sympathetic ear then do mail me.
I totally get it. Not quite been there, but near enough.
Much love.

The awful confession is that I don't feel the loss of a real person, instead I feel the loss of the possibilities he held for such a short time. More than anything I feel for his mother. Nobody should have to go through something like this. It is the definition of true cruelty.

Oh that is just awful, awful news. His poor mother must be going through hell, what a nightmare situation for her and everyone else. Deepest sympathies to all.

oh no! how shocking. Very sorry to hear such sad sad news.

Not much I can say (what do you say when something like this happens). Sorry to hear this, i can't even begin to comprehend how you all must be feeling. My sympathies go out to you all.

This is terrible. My friend lost her baby daughter 2 days before she was due to be born and it was horrific...there's nothing one can do or say in these situations, just try to be there to listen if needed.

Gosh that is such a nightmare to be given a life and then it is snatched away. The poor woman. How do you come to terms with such a tragedy.

Welsh Girl said...

Thank you so much for all your comments. It all helps and it means a lot to me.

I was so sorry to read about this terrible tragedy. To go through all the joy of having a beautiful baby just to have it snatched away so suddenly is beyond comprehension. All those hopes for the future gone ....
