Charlie Bear here again. Mom Peep can’t talk. She can’t even think. She did tell me to thank each and every one of you for your prayers for little baby Hailey, Mom Peep’s Great-Grandchild. So much can happen in one day. And it did.
Baby Hailey seemed kind of okay yesterday morning. She was fighting really hard. But then her little body took a really bad turn. Her vital organs began to shut down, she had swelling in her brain and the doctors told her mommy and daddy that she had irreversible brain damage. Baby Hailey had been on life support, fighting for almost a week, and now her body had given out.
The whole family was distraught last night. Hailey was released to heaven to be home with God and his angels. I’ve never seen Mom Peep so very sad. Her eyes were swollen almost shut from crying and she curled up in bed in a ball. I don’t know how to comfort her except to lay in her lap or curl up next to her.
When she got up this morning she booked a flight up there. She can’t wait to hold her loved ones close and hug them extra tight. I think that’s a good idea, don’t you? I even pulled her Ugg boots out of the closet and told her to wear them this time to stay warm.
Mom Peep has lost many loved ones, but Baby Hailey was so tiny with so much life to live. Only God knows why she was called home to heaven so early, like all the precious little ones before her. I’m going to give Mom Peep extra snuggles today and lick her face before she leaves tomorrow. We hope you hold your loved ones extra close as well.
Wiggles and Woofs,
