When remembering hurts

   Earlier this week Kathryn of Team Whitmaker wrote an excellent post about being changed and a bit haunted from the time her son Luke spent in the NICU and other aspects related to his prematurity.  This post really hit home with me because I have NICU memories that haunt in the back corners of my mind.

  I've been saying for awhile that I need to write out Lisbeth's birth story to add the the backstories page and for myself, but really I don't want to ~ there is so much that went wrong and could have gone horrible wrong ~ I still have a lot of anger about that time if I really marinate in those memories and start brooding.  Since she has, that we know of, suffered no long term effects ~ over the years it has been easier for me to say 'all's well that ends well'.

  However this year since she will be six starting Sunday the day and date will again match exactly the year she was born (her birth year was a Leap Year) so perhaps it is time I faced the memories, write them done, and made my peace with them.

  1. Whether you choose to write them down or not, I hope you are able to come to peace with the memories and I'm so thankful that you can say all's well that end's well!
