JAJ12 Posted January 15, 2017 Share Posted January 15, 2017 My 9 day old grandson died this week. After many medical issues, to include brain damage, my son and his wife had to say goodbye to their beautiful baby boy. My son and his family live out of state and I repeatedly asked if I could come to them while they were struggling to keep their baby alive, I was told "no" every time. And although my son called to say that they were going to let their precious baby go, I was not informed of the actual passing except through a public blog where the world was informed. my son and I have always been close. I'm crushed that I not only lost my grandson (whom I've never seen) but I have lost my son as well. I realize everyone processes grief differently but I'm at a total loss. How do I help in their grieving process if I am kept away. How do I process my own grief if I am not allowed to call, visit, reach out? Please help. I'm leaving to attend the funeral in a few days and have no idea how to approach this situation. Link to comment
