Ethan’s Last Moments 

I was able to spend Ethan’s final hours by his side. I road in the ambulance with him on the way home which was about a 3 hour trip. We arrived to our home at 8:20pm I changed his last diaper and it was just him and I. I put him in his crib and he wouldn’t stop smiling at me. He said his last coo’s to me. At 10:40 Ethan stopped breathing and peacefully slowly closed his eyes. We tried getting him to breath by nudging him and asking him to wake up. We called 911 right away, laid him on the floor and began performing CPR as they instructed us. Ethan didn’t move at all, once he arrived to the hospital they intubated him but it was to late, his heart had stopped. Ethan was pronounced dead at 11:45. I’m glad I was able to have Ethan back home to say goodbye. I was able to hang out with him. I was able care for him for his last moments. I feel like my heart is missing a huge important peace to my happiness. I will never forget my little angel. I will see him again! Our little girl Lilian will grow up seeing Ethan’s pictures all over the house. 💙 Ethan will never be forgotten. I love you so much. I wake up every morning thinking its just a dream & you are still here with us. I go to sleep thinking of you, bawling my eyes out. I’m just glad you are no longer in pain.  It was just to much for you Ethan. This is Ethan’s last photo I took of him alive. You can barely see his little face. #iheartethan #findacure #EB

  7. My condolences go out to you and your family …I truly can’t explain or come to understand this pain you are feeling . As a new mother I feel your pain. A bible text that I encourage you to read and hopefully give you some strength to go on ……..Rev 21:4 –   And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” . God will take away this pain from us and give us the promise we will see our loved ones in paradise.Your son is beautiful .
