I can remember tons times when I have felt pure joy for my group of friends...and also sadness- like when my phone started going off a few years back from text messages from blogger friends telling me about the death of Sweet Baby Mason.
This weekend, the last thing I expected to see getting on Facebook was that the daughter of a girl in our little circle has passed away. Sweet little Avery was only 2 years old. She was such a fighter too!
Avery was born at just 23 weeks gestation, during her first week of life she weighed only 15oz and was 11.5 inches long. She was diagnosed with Congenital Sucrase-Isomaltase Deficiency (among other micro preemie related things) and was fed a special formula with a tube in her belly. But she was SO happy and such a joy to everyone's lives.
