A Double Loss

(Chris and her Mom, Virginia, taken at the 5th Year Anniversary party for HeartFelt Angels)

May 20, 2009

A friend of mine I met thru HeartFelt Angels 6 years ago, Chris, has been with her Mom in the hospital for 2 weeks now. So much going on with her Mom. She's hardly eating enough to keep a bird alive. They made the decision for her to become a DNR and now calling in Hospice. I've called quite a bit and the past few days, I've gone to see Chris and her Mom more. She always gives me a kiss on the cheek and tells me she loves me when I leave. She crocheted ALOT for HeartFelt Angels and made such beautiful things for the babies. She was always very supportive of my charity. When I sit with them, Chris and I just crochet up a storm and her Mom just watches us in between resting. These are a pair of booties I learned how to make while sitting with Chris and her Mom yesterday - they are so cute! Don't you think???

On Thursday evening, Virginia passed away. She was transferred from the hospital to a nursing home. I went over to visit after my trip to UVA (Charlottesville, VA). Chris had stepped out of the room to talk to her sister. I took over her spot on the bed, to hold her hand and talk to her. She looked at me, smiled, and closed her eyes. She was gone. I ran to get Chris. We thought we would have more time with her. I'm going to miss her so much!

Early today, my daughter-in-law lost her baby. She had been having problems with her pregnancy. My son called and told me the news. I am so heartbroken - they lost their daughter....I lost my grand-daughter. I always wanted a daughter and it wasn't meant to be. And today, I lost my grand-daughter.

My heart just aches - too much to handle in one week.

Apple Blossom Deliveries

Here are a few pictures of items received and delivered to Winchester Medical Center's NICU for Apple Blossom!

The nurse that spoke to us as we made the delivery, told us how much they appreciate all that we do for them, especially on holidays. The families and staff truly appreciate all the beautiful items that are made for them. It really brings a smile to the parents!
