The Biggest Loss

Mamaspohr is someone who's Twitters I've enjoyed. I don't know her - but I've admired her sense of humor and follow her on Twitter because of it. She twittered tonight as she and her family took their precious daughter to the ER. Because that's what you do when you go to the ER. You try to keep your shit together by doing silly things. Because if you looked at what was going down full-on you would just crumble.

Tragically, her daughter passed away tonight. She didn't make it home from the ER. From what I can glean she may have had RSV, but I'm not certain. I can't imagine the heartbreak her and her family must be experiencing. I'm so very sorry for her loss. She has requested that any donations go to March Of Dimes.

UPDATE: A Mom Two Boys has updated information about Maddie's service and where you can give in her memory.

OMG! I was reading her Tweets last night because of what I read on your Twitter page. I really thought everything would be fine. You think, "Oh, they're at the hospital. The doctor will fix her." They can't fix everything unfortunately. I can't even imagine what she's going through. It makes me feel lightheaded.

That sends cold chills right through me. Everything can be fine one minute and go to hell the next. So so sad.
