I post so seldom these days I don't even think of myself as a blogger anymore, For now, I'll continue when I want to record something I might want to remember later.
I'm not likely to forget Mason Daniel although I've yet to meet him. He is my tiny great-grandson who was born 4 days ago, 9 weeks premature, weighing 1.39 kg (3 lbs 1 oz) with serious heart and chromosome problems. His time on this earth is limited to days.
I thought I had good coping strategies for coping with "stuff", hurt and loss but I guess I haven't had enough practise at it. I'm lousy at it. I'm sure it would be easier if there were something I could do, if I could somehow help my family get through this horrid time.
I'm consoling myself that looking after the little baby's sister while everyone else in the family is in Auckland to be near the hospital is my contribution. Little Lexis loves being at my place and I love having her here but playing for hours every day is so tiring! And I think being tired is not helping me to cope.
