My granddaughter was born with major heart defects.
She died 21 months ago, when she was nearly 6 as
she never regained consciousness after major heart surgery, she was in hospital for over 2 weeks then crashed and died.
My husband and I are very hands on grandparents and were very involved in her life.
We have another 8 grandchildren between us but it does not take away the anguish and loss.
I and my husband had counseling, as did the rest of our family, her Parents and siblings now age 13 and 15.
I was wondering if there are any grandparents who have lost grandchildren and if there are any support groups for grandparents or the need to start some? Sometimes I think only someone in the same position can really understand.
