Tracy Louise is a beautiful name.
I am glad that it's over and that you've had a chance to bond with your little girl and say goodbye.
I'm thinking of you both so much, and sending lots and lots of love.
She will be back again, when she's ready.

Coming in late and not knowing what to say.
Hi. I'm so sorry to hear of the death of Tracy Louise and the physical trauma that Sharon went through as well.
I wish you both the very best.
My daughter had my mouth!
Ummm, what, did she look at you and say "Strewth, who's that bastard?"
Ha. Yes, that was my first thought. But of course Danny isn't likely to be being anything other than dead straight right now.
As trite and trivialising as it sounds Danny, you and Sharon have my deepest sympathy. (A girl too. Forgive me if I find that somehow even sadder.) I'm looking forward to a happier near future for you both.
But of course Danny isn't likely to be being anything other than dead straight right now.
Foolish human! You're talking about the man who, an hour into holding his dead daughter, started teasing her.
:) Foolish indeed. Good to see your humour will survive anything!
Hmmm, a whole bunch of lines spring to mind, but I think I'll save them for the next time I see you in person. Because as we know from experience, sometimes you and I just think too much alike.
Love and hugs :)
-laughs- Straight or not, Danny's a child of an older Australia, where the time you're hip deep in shit, blood, guts and tragedy is the time you crack the worst jokes...
...and if he doesn't like it, he can smack me one -grin-
What a thing to say to me at a time like this! You bitch! There's tears streaming down my face...
...I just can't stop laughing!
Next time I see you, I want to hold you for an hour, and punch you in the face.
The punch isn't for the line, I just think you've needed one for a long time and this is the only excuse that'd let me get away with it :-)
Heh. Like you need an excuse with me. Come on then, I'm waiting, get your paws up... -grin-
I'll take both of those and give the same in return... how about August?
Ha, that's what I thought too. :)
How wonderful that you both had the chance to bond with her, and love her. I'm glad you got to have that experience. It sounds like its helped you to come to a peaceful place.
A friend of mine went through two rounds of IVF treatment in the US. The first one led to a miscarriage... the second one led to their little girl Ariella.
They're absolutely convinced, on a spiritual level, that the first time was just a false start with the same soul who eventually made it into the world.
Your daughter [i]will[/i] be magnificent.
Glad you and Sharon are both ok. We've been thinking of you all from afar.
The courage you and Sharon have shown during this ordeal has been an inspiration to me. Your strength is an amazing and wonderful thing to witness. Thank you for allowing us to share this trauma with you. I feek honoured to be be your friend and am in awe of both of you.
All my love
Do consider a funeral-like/passing ceremony of any kind. It doesn't matter whether it's a minute's silence in bed, a bonfire on a hill and burning what little you have, or a passing ceremony somewhere. Her life needs to be recognized, and your parts in it too.
It sounds like your and Sharon's actions have definitely been the right thing to do for you. I don't think it's something I could have done, and it's not something I would like to think about either. I'm so in awe of what you've done, and I'm glad it was the right decision.
terry and i set sparky free on the sea to explore the world, with notes from us and sparkles in a little paper boat. it was very important to us - moreso than we had anticipated.
when you feel ready, i would recommend a ceremony of your own.
I agree with kateorman. One thing in situations like this I strongly believe is that she isn't really gone. The spirit is still there, it just wasn't time.
Your strength through all this blows me away. It's just amazing what your outlook on life and how things are is. You remind me of my mentor in a lot of ways, a guy who kept me from being a real problem to society. Never lose that outlook on things. Even if you drop it for a little while when things really get sticky... don't worry... we'll hold it for you.
terry and i just want to say we've been thinking of you during this time. we are so glad that the two of you got to spend time with your beautiful daughter. we know our own little sparky, whom we lost, is with us still in our hearts and minds, and tracy will be forever with the two of you.
Sorry I haven't said anything up until now- but I've been thinking of you and hoping that you and Sharon have been getting the support that you need.
