    Have you heard the tragic news this morning about poor Elaine Lorden? Her 1 year old son died on Sunday, 3 days after she married his father.

    It made me cry this morning when I heard it, and I just felt I had to come on here and do this post. I can only begin to imagine the devestation that they are both feeling at this time. She also lost her mum earlier this year.

    I can't really put into words what I want to say, but I am thinking about them both. This is the worst time of year to lose a family member or friend (although there is really no good time), but to lose a child a week before Christmas.....

    I can't type any more because it's making me feel tearful again.

    I don't know all the details, but he was born 5 weeks prem, and was very poorly from the start. All the news said is that he had spent a lot of time in hospital, and was only recently allowed home.

    i read about that too, how absolutely awful.
    This is what i read...it is just so sad.


    "Elaine found happiness with the birth of her son, but James was born five weeks prematurely last December with a diaphragmatic hernia.

    This meant he had an abnormal opening in his diaphragm which can lead to abdominal organs expanding into the chest cavity.

    James spent months in hospital undergoing a series of operations and surgery, but he was recently allowed home with his parents.

    His parents thought he was "over the worst" and were said to distraught by his "totally unexpected" death on Sunday.

    His death came only days after Lordan, a former star of EastEnders who recently made a brief appearance on ITV1's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, had married her long-term partner and the father of James."
