Today marks 10 years to the day that my 3 1/2 year-old son passed tragically in the hospital; while we were there for routine tests that ended up leading to complications from a radical surgery he had had the year before, to save his life. It was a sudden thing that none of us were prepared for at all, and ultimately it unfortunately led to his passing on this day, at 12:11 pm, 2008.
It IS the single most traumatic thing that I have ever experienced in my life. I went crazy because of it, and I had to fight my way back for a long time.
Everyone that new Karter, new what a light he was in this world. Strong. Resilient. A beautiful spirit.
We miss him every day.
I’ve come to the conclusion that some angels are only here for a little while; to show us things we need to know for the future and to give us the strength to get there.
I do not know if I will see Karter again, but I’d like to think so. He comes to me in my dreams. I know for sure he is better now, and that fact brings me peace.
Today I am keeping to myself. I’m thinking of my children, my sisters, my mother, my ex husband, and my family members that love him.
We were blessed to be in his life, and surely that he graced ours.
Rest in peace Karter Law Rounds; May 3rd, 2005- October 3rd, 2008.
I know you are, and that you show me the way to the light every day.
Sometimes things that are hardest to bear, ultimately end up making you so much stronger inside, and actually help you find a reason to keep going. Xo.
