No, I'm not embarrassed.

Posted by   + Show Post 

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 would think out of LOVE that both of them need to respect your wishes and take the photo down.  I will not say I understand I have never been in your situation but I can respect your wishes enough to say they need to take the pictures down now and not fight it!

First, my prayers and thoughts go out to your LO and family. It is not wrong for you to have requested that certain aspects of your lives stay private.

I don't see anything wrong with sharing it, but its not up to me.  If it bothers you that's all that matters.  My mom (who have been married 45 years) told me that when you disagree, the person who feels the least strongly should give in (out of love).

Some things such as this should only be shared with close friends and family
