    I'm so sorry for your loss, and for everyone else's as well that have stories of their own to share. Know that you have hundreds of people out here sending you and yours the warmest fuies to wrap around your hearts.

    Another place to look for support is www.nationalshare.org . When I worked poast-partum they were absolutely wonderful with our moms who had suffered losses.

    The cabbage leaves work; I found that bruising the leaves before tucking them in helped even more.

    If you're working at a place with chaplains, utilize them as well...they aren't just there for the patients.

    And please please please stop beating yourself up.

    So,,,am back. I logged back in to thank everyone that offered their support and a listening ear at the darkest and very painful point of my life.

    I have had a rough month and a half, but am on my way toward a new 'normal'.
    My physical wounds have been very difficult to heal, and I still have a spot on my suture site that just refuses to heal, plus I still have abdominal pain (which makes me wonder what all is going on on the inside although my OB is unconcerned).
    My emotional wounds are deep and long lasting, but at least I don't cry all the time like I used to.

    I go back to work on monday, but to be honest, I do not think I am physically or emotionally ready to do so.

    I have also decided to leave my husband and have consulted with an attorney. Paperwork should be filed in the next couple of weeks. I think I just realized how little time and control we really have in this world, and I do not want to live my limited time unhappily.

    The one thing I know for sure is that I will be ok. After all, I have my very own guardian angel...Ezekiel.
