Our sweet baby boy was such a good boy. He never cried and if he did it was only for a second. He always had a smile that would melt your heart. He was already a ladies man. He loved to dance and play. He loved his family and everyone he was around! Sadly on April 6th, I went to lay him down for a nap, when I went back to the room I found him. He had accidentially hung himself on the mini blind cord. We were devasted.
Patrick spent five days in the hospital. Watching him and not being able to hold him was the worst feeling. For the first time as parents, we felt helpless. Our son was never going to be the same.If he made it he would be a vegetable. We would have accepted that as long as we had our baby boy, he was the love of our lives! Sadly though, he was deteriating.He stopped breathing on his own, and the machine took over on thursday night. On good friday April 10th, 2009, we made the decison to take him off life support.The doctors told us he wasn't going to make it. That was the worst day of our lives. I held our only child when he passed away.He was not breathing, he was gone in ten minutes. I held him for a about a hour after he had passed. I didn't know how we were supposed to walk out of the hospital without our son. So now I can't bring our son back.Therefore, if his story can save one life or prevent another family from going through what we are going through,then our precious son did not die in vain. Patrick we love you so much. There is not a day that goes by that we aren't thinking of you, we miss you.We know your an angel now. Ma-ma, Da-da and the whole family love ya. You will never be forgotten and will always be in our hearts!
