sad news (loss mentioned) (*not me)
So I think I have posted before about my coworker who's sil is due aroudn the same time we are. and her water broke a couple weeks ago (I think it was 5?) she was doing well and the fluid had built back up. apparently she went into labor yesterday and had the baby. baby was 3lbs and they were hopeful as he appeared to be doing well. Then overnight something happened with his heart and they think he had a heart attack and didn't make it. SO my morning started off with my coworker (also preg and due same time as I am) storming across the parking lot shoving a onesie at me saying "TAKE IT!" I was confused and realized she was fighting tears. then she told me her sil had the baby and he didnt make it. my heart breaks for both of them. she was a first time mom and my coworker was goign to be a first time aunt (from my understanding) my coworker's daughter was so excited looking at the pictures last night of her new cousin... and now she has to be told he's gone. she's 4. how do you tell a 4 yr old that? My heart also breaks for my coworker because she has spent this preg sharing everything with the sil. and now the sil is going to have a constant reminder of the child she lost bc she was due within 3 days of my coworker. My coworker wants to be there for her and at the same time can't bc she won't see her (which is understandable. she's workign into the angry phase right now) and she doesnt know when she's goign to. I tried to convince her to get a sub and go home, but she said she needed to be at work because she'd jsut wallow at home. SO not a good way to start off a day.
