You have an amazing gift & it's nice to share that with you. First
would be more than happy for you to publish it using our details. You in
maybe the first avenue of sharing Jack's & our incredible journey with
who may be having similar experiences. I know when Jack died the one
wanted to share with as many people as I could was that YOU have the right
your dead child, not the Drs or nurses. The fact that we were able
Jack home & spend the next 24hrs with him once he died was incredible as
us time to feel the separation between Jack's body & soul so when it came
to put him in his coffin it was a "peaceful" experience as we had
during the past 24 hours. When I told the hospital I was taking him they
'check' if it was ok & said I had to bring him back in the afternoon.
take him back because I was aware that legally we didn't have to. Having
6 mths working with the 'professionals' we learnt early on how to question
gained the confidence to speak up, that is why at the vulnerable time I could
still speak up whereas many others who have not dealt with them feel as though
the 'professionals' know best. We learnt this is not always the case.
people wouldn't even be aware of their rights & I think the way things are
today is more for the professionals convenience & best interest, not the
bereaved. If we had to part with Jack that first day it would have been
more traumatic whereas as I mentioned it was 'peaceful'.
As for your poem I was very moved by it. Allen I am more than happy with
that. It is beautiful, Thank you. I don't have any other changes or
anything else to suggest.
Allen please do share our message with as many people, i am more than happy
you to put what ever you want into your news letter. Obviously I would
be on your 'mailing list'.
Allen I will be sending a copy of your poem along with all your details to a
wonderful lady, Sara Fleming. She is the palliative carer at the Women's &
Children's Hospital in Adelaide & with your details she may wish to pass
onto families similar to ourselves. I know Sara had some lovely ideas to
with us when Jack was sick & having a poem written is another lovely thing
able to do. Do you have any objections?
I look forward to hearing from you & once again, Thank you"
