Cathy in IL Posted July 11, 2008 Share Posted July 11, 2008 I'm really sad right now. A four year old boy my ds and I know from the hospital died last week. He had sickle cell. He got a fever and cough and just didn't get better. This little boy was a lot like my son. He was playful and full of life. His mom was very attentive to his needs and very careful with his medical care, but his body couldn't fight the acute chest. She took him to the ER with a cough and a fever. He got sick very quickly and was admitted to the ICU. In less then 2 weeks he died. His mom says they are praising the Lord that he is in heaven now. I can't imagine how they must feel. She was by his side in the hospital. I am trying not to compare him to my ds, but it is hard not to. This is the first one of his friends who has died, and he died from something my ds has battled so many times and is so vulnerable to. My heart is heavy today.
