Thanks hortensis, the forecast says blustery and showery, with some bright periods - have lots of warm clothes and wet weather gear so will cope and the house will be warm to go back to via a few pubs or cafes lol

Take care all and thanks again

I was watching the Kangaroo Dundee programme that I recorded earlier, his little joey Daisy had to be put to sleep as she had been injured (Daisy was also the name of my dog who I had to part with in 1998 through cancer) Another joey of his who is now pregnant had the name Zoe and blow me, if he didn't get another little joey and called her Elizabeth! Spooky eh?

Thanks Vera, I loved my baby from the moment she was conceived, even tho the doctor told me I wasn't pregnant, just thought I was cos I wanted to be. He was proved wrong when it was later confirmed I was three months pregnant and then when Zoe was born I was told she was a 30 week baby, despite me thinking it was only 28 weeks. The doctor had a lot to answer for (my gp) as he didn't check me out when he should have and then was late coming to answer my call for help. My usual doctor had asked if I was ok to go with the new doc as his wife had cancer so he was cutting back on his hours, wish I had stayed with him now despite his hours, as he would have been more vigilant and not left me to cope on my own when there were problems.

I just wish I had thought to take a photograph, but it wasn't like nowadays when people have cameras in their phones, didn't even have mobile phones then.

I am sure Zoe is being loved a lot by my parents and other relatives gone ahead.


Thanks again everyone

I'm a bit late posting Liz but I have been thinking of you and your beautiful little girl. I have been blessed with healthy children and grandchildren, and my heart goes out to you and anyone who has lost a child at any age. Zoe may have only been with you for a short time but I am sure her little life was filled with love.

Late on here tonight (this morning) so no time to answer the kind pms I had altho I will do later.

I am moved to tears by your lovely messages, and pms, thank you so much. I am eternally grateful for my son, who is great, but a daughter as well would have been the icing on the cake, altho I suppose had Zoe lived, I would not have been in a position to go off to Malta a few years on and meet my son's Dad, useless as he turned out to be. Both my children were planned altho the fathers turned out to be false promisers, maybe they doubted their own virility !

Most people understand my feelings, but I have had several people over the years say, Oh what's past is past and such. Those people have never had children or have never had loss in their lives.

I love your words Lyndi, Zoe left her footprint on my heart and I have written down your words to save.

As I wrote them I added 31.1.13 at the bottom and realised it is one of those dates that turn on itself if you know what I mean.

I am sure my parents were happy to be reunited with Zoe when they died, and they will all be waiting for me one day.

Thanks again, you lovely people

Lizxx


I made the mistake of watching One born every minute, the evening before yesterday and of course, it struck a chord when the young couple were having their baby, after losing a little boy before. I was on thorns all through my pregnancy in case the same thing happened again, was so happy to get past 30 weeks. Zoe arrived a day late!

How could you expected to confine to Zoe to the past? No way, you carried her with love and she was snatched away too early. You keep her with you and with love and that is only right. Take care <3

Lesley Report 31 Jan 2013 13:31

Although the death of a child will be with you forever so will the love you had for Zoe, and that is obviously so beautiful. Whilst remembering her give thanks for that beautiful piece of your heart you gave her ? I know how it feels.
