Child Loss / missing Shawna
« on: October 16, 2010, 08:58:34 PM »
Shawna passed away at age 31 from liver cancer. She contracted hep-c during one if 3 heart surgeries as a baby and child. We never knew she had it. After 8 yrs of marriage she became pregnant. She went the hospital twice with pain in her right shoulder. They had to take the baby 7 weeks early because she was having cardiac issues. I had always prayed that I'd never have to see her go through another heart surgery. Little did I know what was coming. She, husband and baby moved in with us a few weeks after the baby was born because she was just not well. Then we found out about hep-c. Then the spot on her liver. 5" by the time they found it. I'm so thankful to have had her at home with us the last year of her life. We became very close. She was a mommy for 13 months. She never complained once. She died at home peacefully in her sleep. We were not expecting it to be so soon. Her birthday was 9-21. Her son's birthday is 10-24. Anniversary of her death is 11-22.  It's been the hardest two years of my life. Only those who have experienced this could understand. This wound to my heart may heal in time but the scar goes to the deepest part of my soul and will always be felt.

Nov. 22, 2010 will be the anniversary of my daughter, Shawna's death.
I'd like to hear some ideas of what others do to honor and remember those they have lost on these days.
Thanks, Debbie
