born July 28, 1999 and died July 28, 1999.
Remembered by Mommy, Daddy and Kelcee:
Brittany Taylor died on July 28, 1999 at 6:44am. She had an extra chromosome 13 but right now we don't know how she got it. On July 23, we went to the doctor and found out that she had fluid around her belly and was sent straight to a specialist to find out what it was and had to do a amino and found out that she was anemic and scheduled a blood transfusion for the next day, which was not successful so we were going to try again on Tuesday. When we went in on Tuesday we found out that she was not alive. That was the worst day of our lives. I was taken straight to the hospital to induce labor and at first I didn't think that I could deliver my baby because I wanted to deliver a healthy baby, not a dead one. It was really hard knowing that I was going to have to do that. After starting the medicine at 3:00pm I started my contractions about 2:00am and finally delivered at 6:44am. The delivery was hard because my husband wasn't there. My mother and grandmother were there but I wanted Steve to be there to see his baby. She was so small and weighed only 13ozs. I knew she would be little but at 19 weeks I didn't think she would be that small. You could see her characteristics she kinda looked like her sister Kelcee. She had long fingers and toes and a nose just like Kelcees. It was really hard looking a her but I'm really glad that we did because in the long run we would have felt really bad. Friday, July 30,1999 was the funeral. We buried her in this beautiful cemetary in Rhea County called Babyland. Seeing the little coffin was the hardest part. Steve and I both wrote letters to her and I gave her one of my favorite Mickey Mouse dolls so she wouldn't be alone (Aunt Judy gave her a beanie bag hippo. Her daddy put her in the ground it was really hard seeing that he was so pitiful. But we know that she is in a better place. Even though we would prefer her to be here with us. We love you B.J. and you are always in our thoughts. Our little ANGEL...
