There is not much that we can say now, other than Briana's 18 days with us were very special, and she fought hard from the beginning. Right up until the end, we were with her and we fought along side her as much as we could. We never gave up hope, until she told the doctors and us that she was ready to move on. At that time, they let us hold her and say goodbye to our sweet angel. She felt no pain, and the doctors and nurses acted with the utmost dignity, respect and compassion. We will never be able to thank enough the special people at Crouse, nor all of you for your support through all of this.
I pray that anyone out there who is currently experiencing something like this, or who may ever go through anything like this, please do not ever lose hope and faith. Sometimes things are just meant to be, but please stay strong and hopeful for the loved ones who need it. I truly believe that hope, faith and love can be just as powerful as any medical treatment.
If we may so humbly request one more thing from all of you, it is to please pray for all the families whose babies are still in the Crouse NICU, that they may remain strong and hopeful, and that they can bring their babies home.
We love you so very dearly Briana Emily, and we will do our best to honor your life by supporting other families. We miss you tonight sweet angel.
