Feb 13 th 2011 our 2 year old passed away after less then a week in pediatric icu. The diagnosis ended up being encephalitis related to influenza b. Lily had her flu shot so her reaction to the flu is hard to understand. We put our 7 year old and ourselves in therapy immediately afterwards, his play therapist suggested after about a month we take him to a child psychiatrist who diagnosed him with PTSD( post traumatic stress disorder) which he's now on meds for. I was about 4 months pregnant when Lily passed the baby is due this month.
I'm at the point I recent ally came out of shock. Getting ready for one baby girl while grieving for our toddler has been a major roller coaster.

I am so sorry but I am so proud of you for getting therapy to help everyone, what a blessing instead of pretending it all didn't happen. hugs, Josie
