I've been debating for a little while on how to share this, but felt it was time.
Back in October I shared with you our wonderful news, we were having a baby.
Unfortunately, in early December we found out during our detailed ultrasound, at 20 weeks, our little one was not able to survive.
Both of Baby's kidneys were malformed and non functional, Multicystic Dysplastic kidneys. Which means that there was no urine/amniotic fluid production by the baby and the lungs did not/will not develop properly as a result.
It was a devastating turn of events, that resulted in me going in to the hospital just before Christmas (Dec19th) to be induced.
I did however, give birth to a very tiny but still amazingly beautiful baby boy, whom we named John Robert Curry, or J.R.
Being my first child it was both an absolutely amazing and heartbreaking thing.
And as sad as it was, I am grateful for the experience in general.
I will say, the nurses I had throughout my time in hospital were amazing. I work with nurses everyday, but when you are a patient you see a whole other side.
So to keep this post crafty, I am also sharing the mini cards I made for them as a thank you. (I also included some homemade goodies as well!)
There is some significance here, the butterflies.
At our hospital when the unit has a mother in going through something like this, to make staff aware, for privacy etc., they place a butterfly on the door. So I thought I would use one on my card.
Thank you so much for letting me share.
I hope you all had an absolutely fabulous holiday season and wish everyone much joy & happiness for the coming year.
