Random Things I Forgot to Write

1. First of all, here is Justin's Brigham Beard on January 28th, the morning after Brigham passed away. He shaved it right after I took this because even though Brigham didn't come "home" like we thought he would, he still went "home".

2. During Brigham's last few days, he was on a medication called Sildenafil, better known as Viagra... Little known fact, viagra started out as a cardiac medication because it helps dilate blood vessels, lowers blood pressure and allows the heart and lungs to function easier. Anyways, we thought it was funny :)

3. Justin was able to give Brigham his "name and a blessing" blessing in the hospital, the day of his surgery. It made Justin a little teary-eyed when we got the certificate last week from our Bishop.

4. You all know Brigham's birth weight: 6 lbs, 5 oz. They weighed him the night he died, while we were doing his bath etc.... 10 lbs, 8 oz! He never had a chance to eat, so it was allll "water" weight! Poor kid, no wonder he couldn't breathe! He gained 2/3 of his weight in swelling! For a little perspective, that would be like me gaining 90 pounds in 3 weeks! I'd have a hard time breathing too!

That is really neat that Justin was able to give Brigham his name and blessing. Really special.
