Our new guardian angel

Most of you probably remember back in February, Joe’s sister Nicole had her second son, Camdin. (Here’s the post I wrote about it)

We visited him in the hospital right after he was born. He was so little and cute. The girls were in love with their new cousin.

We got a call today around 4:30AM, from Joe’s dad. He said he was on his way into town, because Camdin had just passed away. Nicole had put him to sleep, and he was fine. She checked on him a few hours later and he wasn’t breathing.

The autopsy that was performed a few hours ago showed nothing, so it’s been ruled as SIDS. Shock doesn’t begin to describe it. We are so sad, and angry that this has happened. I can’t even imagine how Nicole and Joey are feeling right now. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Camdin Ray, you will be missed by so many people who would have loved watching you grow up. We love you so much and will always remember you and wish you were here with us.

Please hug your babies and cherish every second you have with the ones you love. Life can change in an instant.

I am so sad to hear this news. Losing a loved one is never easy, but it's even more difficult when it's a baby who hasn't gotten a chance to live their life to the fullest. He will be looking down on you and your whole family for years to come. I know that doesn't make this horrible nightmare any easier, but know that God works in mysterious ways and that we're here praying for you and the entire family.

I'm following a blog who's writer lost her baby to SIDS a few months ago. She lives in Texas, but she may be able to provide support as she's also been through this awful experience. When you're feeling up to it: http://kandjstaats.blogspot.com/

My eyes are welling up with tears after reading your post. Who would have thought that after he was carried for nine months and cared after he was born would just be gone like that. I've read books about SIDS and so sad to hear that this happens to innocent angels. My prayers and thoughts to your family. Please send my hugs. *hugs*

Karen said...

Oh my goodness. Hearing these kinds of things make my heart ache. I'm so sorry to hear this. I can't even imagine the pain the parents are in. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

This breaks my heart. I am so sorry for your loss.

Bernadette said...

I'm so sorry, my heart breaks for you and your family. SIDS is such a tragedy and made more difficult with the fact that there's never an explanation. I don't know if I ever told you that my sister lost her second son to SIDS about 16 years ago. There are a lot of great support groups for parents out there..it definitely helps to talk to others who have been through the same tragedy. It never really gets better or easier to deal with, you just learn to continue on.
My love and prayers go out to y'all. God rest his sweet soul.
