No, I'm not embarrassed.

READ and re-read if you don't get it. The picture I posted in this link is not the same picture my DF posted on FB that upset me. He can post pictures of his son all he wants I just did not want the picture where he has blood and tubes all over him posted. 


        Recently my LO had major surgery (refer to my link for more info on that) and we of course took a picture of him after just to have a picture of him with all his tubes and wires. My DF posted the picture on FB and I asked him to take it down. He later asked me if I was embarrassed of our child's current condition. I told him no I was not, I just felt it was not something to publicly display on FB. My dad ended up sharing it before my DF took it down. I explained to him there are about 400 or more people idk who are not close to us seeing that picture. It's a heart breaking picture of an infant in recovery. I told him I have no problem with showing the picture to select people but not the world. Do you agree with my decision to request they both remove the picture. Does it mean anything bad on my part to not want to display it like that?

I just saw the pics from the 24th. God was with him. He sure is one handsome boy. No, I don't know what you went though, but god does not give us any more then we can handle. Your son is special.

Lots of love and prayers for his recovery. I think it is an intimate thing and FB is not the place to share it unless you want to. Face book is highly impersonal.

I absolutely agree with you! I don't like to post pictures of my child as it is let alone if my baby was going through something as difficult as yours did.

 I don't think it's bad on your part at all, I would feel the same way.

I agree with you. Some things are sacred - especially pictures of our children. Social media is soulless.
