I have a pretty complicated situation. I haven't been on here since my son was born 16 months ago and I just found that I might have 3 years TOPS to live. I have Myelodysplatic Syndrome which is essentially bone marrow failure. My son may be 3-4 if I end up dying as estimated and I don't know how I would address that to him when he's a little bit older. I'm thinking maybe a letter or some video taping.
Anyways, I pose this question to you all. How would you handle this situation?

I am so sorry. Like others have said chersih every moment you have with your child I am sure you are. I think the video tapes are a good idea. I think I would tape special things you guys did together so when he is older he could see what a wonderful mother you are. I would write down special thoughts you had about him or life in general and maybe when life gets tough for him he can look at those letters and reflect. I do not think he will understand when he is four but he will eventually and l think by leaving special notes and tapes he will still have a part of you with him. Again I am so so sorry about your situation. You are in thoughts and prayers !!!!
