We Miss You Max
I remember so much of Max's life. I remember the day his mommy found out he was on his way. I remember feeling him kick while he was growing in her tummy. I remember planning his baby shower. I remember finding out he was breech and the phone call from his daddy letting us know he was here.
I remember how he felt to hold. His shape, his weight distribution was so different from my babies, and so similar to his sister's. I remember visiting in those early days and chatting with his mommy while they nursed.
I remember his family deciding to test him for Duchenne. I remember the day they were trying to get the results from the doctor and talking to his mommy while she swam in a sea of uncertainty and "what ifs". I remember the phone call that the results were in and they were not good. I remember sitting in a dim coffee shop soon after that day. 3 friends gathered, one sweet baby boy hugged between them.
