Journal MikeBabcock's Journal: One shouldn't have to bury one's son 1

My wife went into labour on Thursday and delivered a beautiful baby boy at 10:30 AM. We had a couple great days with him but he died of ammonia poisoning from his genetic condition (OTC deficiency) today at 2:10 PM. We're glad we had two good days and he didn't suffer much and lived a life full of love, albeit short.

One shouldn't have to bury one's son

  • Not much that I could possibly say to help, but I'd like to ask this - do you know anything we can do to help make sure this doesn't ever happen to anyone else? Let me know.

It isn't easy being the parent of a six-year-old. However, it's a pretty small price to pay for having somebody around the house who understands computers.
