Carter Dillon 03.08.16

I am a mom of 2 girls ages 4 and 6 and we lost our 1st son at 36 weeks gestation. He was beyond perfect. He weighed 5.5 lbs and was 18 1/2 inches long! I remember waking up on 3/8/16 and had a pain in my stomach that felt like a never ending contraction and decided to go to labor and delivery. That’s when they told me that my son didn’t have a heart beat and that my placenta had completely detached from my uterus and that I needed a emergency c section. It was the worst experience of my life. This day is still so fresh to me, being 6 weeks ago, and yet it seems like yesterday. I keep reliving this and wishing I would just wake up from this horrible long dream. My son’s name was Carter Dillon. My girls were so thrilled to finally be getting a little brother.. and it hit them hard when they realized that he went to heaven and that he wasn’t coming home with us. We are all still really struggling with his death and it doesn’t seem like it will ever get any easier.
