The last time that I posted this picture was a few hours before Ollie went into cardiac arrest. They were weaning him from the vent, he was opening his eyes and moving a little. I couldn't for that day to pass and now I'd give anything to go back to it. This morning has been hard, but when Maddie saw me getting upset, she ran right over and gave me a big, long hug... it reminded me of one of my favorite quotes. I'm sorting through a mess of emotions right now, but what I do know is this...
On January 3, 2013, my 1 yr old son, Ollie, passed away. That's where my life "before Ollie" ends and my grief journey begins... My new normal, my path toward healing, my life "after Ollie". I'm a grieving mother who believes in hope. This is my story.
