Gone too soon

Another child lost to this cruel world of congenital heart defects. It just doesn't seem fair. I only recently heard about and started following the story of Baby Ewan.

ewan :: sept 22 :: sooc

He had a more severe form of the same defect Bilal has, tetralogy of fallot, but also with pulmonary atresia. He developed a bacterial infection, and his fragile heart and body couldn't handle the stress. Last night he left this earth to be in heaven.

It's so sad, my heart aches for this baby I never even new, and for his parents who will no longer be able to hold Ewan in their arms.

And there are some many more precious children fighting a tough and heroic battle against CHD as we speak, and others who recently fought long and hard till they couldn't fight any longer. It's so sad, my heart aches with each story I hear. Hug your babies extra tight tonight, and don't take anything for granted.
