Default Heidi Mueller Buffet1

Hi Everyone

Unfortunately I have some terrible news. And I write this with an extremely heavy heart barely being able to see through my tears while to the screen.

I got an e-mail from Heidi's husband, asking me to call him. I just got off the phone with him.

Their daughter Abigail was born on November 7th, she's beautiful and healthy. She is now 11 pounds.

The bad news is that due to the preeclampsia Heidi developed Hellp syndrome. she was helicoptered to another hospital after the baby was born.

Heidi's liver and kidney shut down. She was on dialysis as well as lifesupport. Heidi didn't make it. She passed away on December 7th. She was 34.

I could hear Abigail crying in the background and Eric's mom has been staying with him helping with the baby. We talked for a while and he talked about Heidi with great love as well as his daughter. He had no idea about Heidi's life on CT.

I told him she was very loved and a huge supporter to many of us. I read to him her last post here in CT and that was when I completely lost it. I told him I would cut and make a memorial book of all her posts here so that he has it when Abigail gets older.

I have Eric's address and phone # I won't post it since this is a public forum, please e-mail me at brod819@yahoo.com (not here) and I will e-mail it to you. I'm hoping everyone can send him a card so he knows how much Heidi was apprciated here.

I had never heard of HELLP syndrome, here is a link
HELLP syndrome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

He did tell me Heidi did meet her daughter and got to kiss and hold her.

I'm hoping that someone can do a memorial blinkie for Heidi?

I am so sorry to leave this post. I thought about calling people that I have phone #'s for..but I just couldn't do it.

Eric is on facebook now and has pics of Abigail that he will post.

I will be on later on tonight to check my messages.

Besty thanks for texting me. I didn't know Heidi well, but I am SO sorry for her family. I don't have any words but I will be praying for them all. I am glad this information was relayed to everyone and that it wasn't thought she had given birth and moved on, because her family needs our prayers and I hope our prayers are felt by her family.

I can't stop crying. Heidi was so awesome. She sent me my copy of TCOYF. That's all I can say right now.

Heidi's family is in my prayers...

I did not know her too well but I did get a chance to talk to her since I have been a part of CT.

I still cannot believe it...

I am over here crying and my heart is aching.

May God bless her soul...

This is the most horrible news! Heidi was a wonderful woman and was very loved and respected on this board. I will be praying for her family and beautiful little girl.

Betsy I think that is such a very beautiful idea to put together all her posts so that her daughter can one day read them.

I can hardly type because of all the tears. Nothing like this should ever happen to a family.

Oh, no. No words can describe how terrible this news is. Abigail is beautiful, I'm so glad that Heidi had the chance to hold her and kiss her. She will be sorely missed. Prayers to her poor family. This news is just.....I can't believe this.....

I am so sad but Heidi lives on within that beautiful baby girl. I feel sorry for Eric to have to be sad and happy at the same time. So happy to finally have that baby girl but so sad to lose his beloved wife.

I didn't know Heidi well but I am praying for her family. I pray for God to give them comfort at this time.

This is devastating news. My heart hurts so much for Eric and beautiful baby Abigail. Her mother was so excited about her and my prayers most definitely go out to them in this very hard and trying time. God please bless them with courage to continue on for this new joy during such grief.
