Members mayo129 Posted April 30, 2009 Members Report Share Posted April 30, 2009 Three weeks ago today we buried Cassidy. Cass was born premature (34 weeks). 5-25-06 She was in Stony Brook Hosp for a month then transferred to NYU, where she had jaw distraction surgery and fundoplication. She stayed in NYU for 2 months then we took her home. She had a few more surgeries but was doing well. In March, she was put back in NYU because she was severely anemic. They gave her blood and she was released after a week. She was now in a new formula and she was gaining weight. She was home with us for about a month and was doing well. We brought her to the pediatrician 4/4/09, because she had a cold. They prescribed antibiotis and we scheduled a recheck for the following week. The next day she was tired but nothing unusual when she has a cold. Monday, 4/6/09, she just never woke up from her sleep. My daughter performed CPR until paramedics came but it was too late. The police had to investigate because she died at home. We felt like we were criminals. They wouldn't let us in our house for 5 hours. When we finally let back in the police had taken her blankets, bottle, and items in her crib. The medical examiner hasn't given us a cause of death yet it is still pending further study. I am her Grandma and she and my daughter lived with us. We loved her so much. I feel like my heart will never mend. I miss her and I can't bear to lose her like this. The attached picture was taken in Feb. when I brought her to lunch with my sisters. I'll love her forever.Grandma Maryanne Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
