No Aspirin!- from Heather

I heard back from the Medical Examiner the other day and he notified us that the Aspirin issue was in fact a false positive, which was a relief! He also made his final conclusion on the reason for death and they are ruling it an accidental death from the fall, which lead to Micah aspirating the pea, then developing pnuemonia, and choking. I am relieved to know that the case is closed from the Medical Examination standpoint but we continue to have questions relating to Micah's care and why he ended up dying from all of this. I called the chief medical doctor at Children's and set up an appointment for the beginning of September to discuss in detail the events leading up to Micah's death. I am hoping to get closure and our questions answered so we can continue our grieving without the mystery of "how" he died.
Thank you all so much for your encouragement and prayers during this time...we feel so loved and continue to daily need prayer. I have felt that it isn't getting any easier to grieve our son and in fact some days seem to be more difficult. We appreciate you all so much!
I continue to cling to one of my favorite verses:

Romans 15:13 (ESV)

"May the God of all hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope"


  1. So relieved that the "asperin" was a false positive--that's got to be a relief...glad that all is completed with the ME...keeping you all in prayer for comfort, healing and peace.

  2. Thank you, Jesus, for some medical answers and the opportunity for Heather to discuss Micah's case with the chief doctor. We trust you and even your strange promise that "blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted". Please continue to comfort Heather & Cory and send your Spirit to fill them with all joy & peace and an abundance of hope. Amen.
