Howl

Today I am heartbroken for Mirne and Craig, who just lost the third of their children, a precious son named Jet, who only lived three days. He joins his sister Freyja and brother Kees. Today I am howling the name Jet from the rooftops and in the streets. There is something so very wrong with the Universe that two such loving parents would be allowed to suffer such unending heartbreak.

I completely agree. Howling is the right word. It is just so unfair.

I have been frozen in terror all day. I can't beleive it, I check today in hopes of news of their new wee one, instead this and I want to die, and their pain is too immense to even begin to process.
Man oh man, why? just why?

I read her blog and am shocked on so many levels. Two people I knew who lost babies to SIDS had their next babies on monitors for weeks after birth. One is a very close firend and she told me that this is standard in the U.S. for a child born after a sibling dies of SIDS. I guess not in other countries. How sad and tragic!
