My second born child died of a rare cancer about 11 years ago. She was born right after Christmas in 1995. My oldest son and I get really emotional around this time of year because it brings us back to those times spent in the hospital with her fighting for her life. She lost her battle in 1999 at almost 3 and a half years old. Everyone always says I was blessed with a big, healthy family, and yes I am truly blessed. No doubt about that.. But how do you cope with a lost love one around the holidays? I've done it for many years and I feel like I've been in a fog and I don't know how I did it. I miss her so much. And so does my son. My husband tries not to show emotion about it. We don't really talk about her because we don't want to confuse the little ones about it and don't want them to ask a bunch of questions. Plus, they're probably too young to understand.. It's too hard to even think about.
Anyways, my point is: How are those of you who have lost a child coping with it this holiday season? Bump this if you've been in my situation and/or lost a child.
