I am glad you went to the funeral and it sounds like it helped you. Please allow yourself the time to remember him. I like to keep a pic of my kiddos with me for a while... reminds me that they are gone but still with me ... and there will be another little soul that will touch your heart someday, trust me. You sound like a wonderful, compassionate nurse. God put you in this little boys life to care for him until He was ready to take him back to Heaven. as i said before , think of him happy and laughing and playing in heaven... that is his reward. Peace to you my friend

I haven't been able to talk myself into going to the funeral of any of my kids yet. Not sure if I would handle it very well.
Good nurse. God bless. Get up and take care of another one tomorrow, because that's what we do!
