ok, here is the deal. I think I might be going out of my mind, but I have to talk to somoene, I just don't know who. My son was born, double foot breach a year and half ago, he suffered numourus complications and unnessary procedures and spend a month on a heart/lung bipass where we prepared for the worst. (I thought we would loose him that night) but we didint. he just kept getting better. He has polycystic kidney disease and hemipireisis from a bleed he got on the Bipass. (he was fine when born, the hospital hurt him) He is otherwise healthy, and happy and amazing, so glad to have him with us.
so why do I keep greaving over the image of him in the box? he's here, he didint die,so why cant I let it go?, and who the heck do I talk to about such things? anyone else go through the ECMO expereince? I feel so freaking alone. Its not just the stress of being a special needs mom, its all of it. The only thing I can think of is maybe talking to a grief counsler? can you do that when no one is dead? anyone know of any?
