to all our Friends
was admitted to the hospital on 4-17-02 to have some changes made to her
ventilator. All was going pretty well Hannah and I spent the afternoon
snuggling and reading books; it was just Hannah and me. At on 4-17-02 Hannah and I were reading a book,
one of those touch and feel books. Hannah got very blue so I called the
nurse and she came in. We started bagging (breathing for Hannah with an ambu bag) Hannah made a little sound and I leaned down
face to face with her and told her its ok mommy's here. At that time, in
that moment Hannah's heart quit beating, I felt her leave. Hannah went to
live with Jesus on 4-17-02 at Hannah was born on 7-14-02 I picked
up Hannah and snuggled her. So after family and friends came to see her, I
bathed her, hand printed her, then I carried her from her hospital room
outside, I had planed to only carry her to the stretcher but when I started
carrying her I realized I have never carried my Angel Baby anywhere without
tubes and wires, so I carried her outside. The night was warm and the sky
was crystal clear all the stars were shining down on us as I laid my Angel
Baby onto the stretcher. I covered her up with her blanket, gave her a
kiss, a hug and her prayer bear. Then I said a little prayer to her we
always say this prayer we just changed it a little tonight..Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the lord my soul
to keep Angels guard me through the night and wake me in Gods' holy light.
I thank God for allowing me to hold and love an Angel..
