Erin and I went to our 1st Grief Share meeting on Monday night. It was an awkward, wierd, and good feeling. Being there helps us realize the reality of our situation. Josiah is gone, and we dearly miss him. However, it also helps us to know that we are doing a good job with continuing our lives. In some of the videos we watched the other night, we heard stories about individuals who completely shut down their lives. I don't believe we have done this. We have two beautiful girls that keep us awake and alive, and who are always talking about their little brother. We are so grateful for him.... and them.
Here's what we want to ask of you our readers: our friends, and family. Continue to ask us about Josiah. Let us tell you some of the stories we forgot to write about. Let us teach you what we have learned about pediatric cardiology. Let us pick on ourselves, our nurses, and our doctors and all the things that happen in this fraternity called the PCICU. We don't want to forget, move on, or lose touch with everything that happened in the last year: good and bad.
So go ahead, ask us anything. What question have you kept quiet to "protect" us? We promise we won't be offended... we won't be angry. We will laugh, and we might cry a bit, but we need to do that too!
