Dear itspaulas, I am so very sorry to hear that your time with Malachie came to an end today. It's such a sad time for you now.No matter how prepared we think we are, there is no way of preparing for that last look. Bless you for putting Malachie's needs ahead of your own when he needed you to help him. You assisted him on his final journey, knowing that your own suffering would begin. You mention that there was no miracle in the end, but there is one miracle that never ends, and that is the love you and Malachie share for eternity. Nothing, not even death, can break the bond you have with him. As time passes, you will come to realize that the bond continues to grow even now. How do you function? One day, one hour, one minute at a time. And please come back here. It helps so much to know that you have a place to go where everyone understands your sorrow, and where no one will tell you to "get over it," to "get a new one," or any of those other things that so many people say when they think they are being helpful. We all understand. I look forward to getting to know Malachie through your stories, so lovingly told, and I hope to see pictures soon. You and Angel Malachie are in my thoughts and prayers and I'm sending you virtual hugs of comfort and understanding.
My heart is battered and bruised, but I will not let it break. It holds such precious cargo, I must protect it now. (Susie Squillions)
