I've updated her blog as well, but I just wanted to add a few things. When I briefly spoke to Meg and D. this morning by phone, I had assumed her daughter was stillborn. She was in fact born alive, briefly, and died soon afterwards.
Meg will be staying in hospital overnight as a precaution, they just want to be sure she is okay before she leaves.
The response has been overwhelming and filled with love. She and D. are so grateful for all the support you have given.
Thank you so so much.
The next time some cynical commentator tells you that the internet is useless and doesn't help anyone, correct them for me, okay? Because today I have seen the value of all that love and support and damn, it can't bring back her daughter, but it helps to know that when tragedy strikes, the world cares.
