Hello JDB I just came upon your post from 2017 and it reminded me of my Alma...I let her go August 1st....she was 17 and 10 months old so similar to your baby. She was with me since she was 6 months old. She was basically ok until 2 days before her passing when she had a seizure followed by a short unconsciouness. Then 2 days later another seizure that almost choked her.
It was terrible to watch and although I never found out what the exact cause was I was told that it must have been something grave because at that age seizures are not a good sign. Nonetheless I replayed this moment 15 Million times in my mind wondering what I could have done or should have done or whether I should have waited....I will never know. I was told I probably spared her a lot of pain and I survive on that phrase. I am sorry you too had to go through this and your baby looks awesome and cute. I hope you are better now. x
Alma, the light of my life in my darkest hours....you will be missed forever...
