My beautiful baby girl, Violet, was born on August 19 2013. She was healthy. Amazing. Perfect. Everything was perfect. My life could not have been better. On January 30th 2014 Violet started getting sick. She wasn't breathing well. I rushed her to the ER, where it was found that she had Influenza A (H1N1, "Swine flu"). She was admitted to the hospital, but her breathing became worse and worse. It was decided to life flight her to a children's hospital, but as soon as the life flight team walked in her room she crashed. They tried so hard to save her, they tried for so long. They did life flight her but it was too late. She was pronounced dead at the children's hospital. She was 5 months 12 days old. I am shattered. Broken. I don't know how to live without her. I started a blog as a way to get my feelings out. I hope someday if another mother loses their child that my writings will help her. I am a shadow of my former self.

This is the link to my blog if anyone would like to read along.
