My stepson is with us for the summer. His mother just gave birth to a baby boy 2 weeks ago. While she was pregnant they found out the baby had a heart condition and would need several surgeries in the first few months of his life. As soon as he was born he had his first open heart surgery. He was scheduled to have another surgery today, however he passed away early this morning before they even got to do the second surgery. Last night he had a tube put in his stomach, he could no longer eat on his own. This morning he choked on his own vomit and passed away. . My husband got a call from his ex mother-in-law at 6 am. We told my stepson and of course he is crying and very sad. I feel horrible for the family and my stepson. We are in NY and his mom is in FL. They might bring the baby up here for the services as her whole family lives in NY. I feel so bad for the mom, she must be in so much pain. She has been living at the hospital with the baby for the past couple of weeks, she was very optimistic that there would be a good outcome. The poor thing, she really thought the baby would pull through. Absolutely heartbreaking!!! They say tragedy happens in threes. My daughter is not doing well and is in the hospital, my stepson's baby brother passes away and we also found out that my husband's first cousin just went to jail for murder, he is facing 25 to life!!! What else is going to happen? Life stinks sometimes. Any ideas on what I should be saying to my stepson? I told him God needed another angel.
