passed away

‘Can you do the session tomorrow? We don’t have much time.’ I couldn’t hold back my tears.’: Photographer captures ‘bittersweet’ moments one day before baby passes from Microcephaly

“The next day, I showed up for the photo shoot. As soon as his mom brought him in, I was immediately teary-eyed. But they weren’t tears of pity, it was genuinely pure joy. He was the cutest little fighter I’d ever seen. See, baby Aiden was supposed to be stillborn, but he came out fighting. I cried, prayed, yelled, and cried some more the entire 45-minute drive home. I woke up the next morning to a message that he died. I am a wreck right now.”

‘He woke with a small cough. Within hours, he had trouble breathing. A few hours after that, he took his last breath.’: Woman’s husband who ‘never got sick’ passes suddenly from Bone Marrow Failure months before birth of son

“My husband Jonas began to look pale. We both chalked it up to jet lag and went on with the week. We had two small children and I was 14 weeks pregnant with our third, so being tired wasn’t out of the norm. Later that week, even picking up the kids’ toys would make him dizzy. Another week went by, all the while he continued to ride his bicycle over 20 miles a day. He came home that night after riding and had almost passed out while riding. ‘Enough is enough.’ I figured it couldn’t hurt to go to the doctor.”

‘You are NOT a widow.’

“It might be meant to be funny and it might be catchy, but if you are saying it and your husband is still alive, you are using the term wrong. You are not a widow.”
