I remember exactly what it was like to wake up that morning.
It was only a moment ago that I counted down each day for the impending arrival of our newborn baby boy, our son Foxx Fitzgerald and yet I was facing ‘the morning after’ that I never could foresee.
I planned to walk out of hospital with our first child in arms but instead I walked out cusping a belly that was just as empty as our arms. Tears rolled down the cheeks of my face and the drive home was just as silent as my heart would be for the months that followed.
In the moments that we walked through the door what followed was an array of delivery men with bouquets that filled their arms just as much as their vans. The entire floral service sold out in our town in a day and filled the room our child was meant to lay in.
Our son, Foxx Fitzgerald passed at three days old. Group B Streptococcus is a bacteria that is as deadly as it is transient in birth. Our almost 39 week old son was born healthy but all it took was five hours to prove that he was far from that. He was highly infected and not even antibiotics and an induced coma could save him from the detriments of GBS after three days of fighting.
Every time another bouquet was greeted at our front door I began to feel the weight of our reality and after a few days it began to sink in that these flowers too will die and be a distant memory. It felt like a cruel reflection of the reality involved in child loss – here today, gone tomorrow.
In my home today, two and half years on lives on this one gift that still resonates strongly with me in every way. The print reads:
YOU ARE MY TODAY’S AND ALL OF MY TOMORROW’S
I am still a mama.
