    Mel, thanks for posting. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been for you to write. I think about you and Eilish every day. I wish there was something better we could say or do.

    Thank you for sharing your story, Mel. You did what made perfect sense, and is what any of us would have done, and have done. I cannot imagine what you are going through, but hope that it helps to know that many, many people have been touched by this story and by Eilish's life.

    Thank you so much for posting here. You are so strong, even if you don't feel it. I am so glad that the diabetes community around the world has been able to help carry you with their prayers and thoughts and love these past six months. Your daughter was special and so are you, Mel. I bet if Eilish were beside you right now she would chastise you for blaming yourself. As sucky as it is to here; sometimes things happen that we have no control over. I'm so sorry for that.

    I have prayed for you and Charlie and Ella for six months and I will continue to.

    I would like to thank you for sharing your story and I will continue to pray for your family. It hits us all very close, especially knowing you did what any one of us would have done. God Bless.

    I admire your strength and courage to post your story. What you and your husband did for Ellish sounds exactly like what any of us would have done. I hope you can get to a place in your heart where you can remember the wonderful times more often than this heartbreaking time. As a mom, I can't imagine your loss.

    I think of you so often Mel, my heart breaks for you. You are a wonderful mom, you did what any vigilant parent would do!

    This obscene blow that fate dealt you is so absolutely unfair. Please know you and your family are in my prayers always.

    I can't begin to imagine the sorrow you must feel and there are no words to express how saddened I am for your loss. And please, please let go of the guilt. You did not "fail". This breaks my heart to see you feel this on top of the pain you must be enduring. Your family and your sweet Eilish will be in my prayers.

    Mel, I have nothing to say that hasn't already been said by the previous posters. I just want to add my thanks. I will keep you, Charlie and Ella in my continued prayers. We may not really "know" each other but I have been touched deeply by your words. I feel truly honored to have been given the opportunity to get to know your beautiful daughter through your shared photos, stories, and Elish's amazing poems. (((Hugs)))

    Mel - Thank-you so much for sharing, it was very kind of you to give PofCWD this information. I agree with all the pp, you acted in the best interest of Eilish and in NO WAY failed.

    Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts.:cwds:
