Cheaper than Therapy
I know...hard to believe that 'I' could be speechless, right?
Since a little over a week ago I have been in such a funk. Certainly not my silly RaMbLeR self. For my bloggy friends that do not Twitter then I will explain...those that do have surely heard all the buzz going on here in blogland.
ALL ABOUT MADDIE
On April 7 I spotted a Twitter that I could not help but check out and it lead me to the blog of a very good friend (Meghan) of Heather Spohr. Through more following I then found Heather's husband, Mike Spohr's blog.
With every piece of information my heart broke just a little more for Heather and Mike. Piece by piece I was putting together this sad ending to the story of their beautiful precious 17 month old little girl.
This little angel's name.... Madeline. Heather lovingly referred to her as Maddie Moo and to Mike she was "Madeline….to my Chicken Muffin Love Bear… to my Mooseroni…my chippy, chippy, chippy, chippy monkey, to my little girl".
It has been amazing to see the love and concern and caring spread like wild fire all over Twitter and through blogland asking for help and support which you can find on the above mentioned blogs.
Here is the heart touching tribute Heather and Mike made for Maddie.

AND THEN THERE WAS THALON
As if my heart was not breaking enough I see another tweet about another death of a sweet innocent little baby. His name...Thalon.
I don't know the complete details of all that happened but I was lead to his mother's blog Gorillabuns through her friend Whoorl where you can tell by her words that she is so broken without her baby.
This sweet little boy was only on this earth from December 22, 2008 - April 10th or 12th or both, 2009.

And these deaths of these two precious fragile babies makes the memories of my visits in the NICU with my own very sweet Roo all too fresh!
I hate to even go there in thought! Reading about these tragedies and how sudden they both were. It brings the possibilities and the vulnerabilities of Roo way too close to home. With him having Cerebral Palsy he is more susceptible to illness than a typical child.
Like I said before, it just breaks my heart for these families even though I don't personally know any of them and I truly wish that I could reach out and give them...whatever they are needing to get through this.
