Jayden Thomson
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our little man, Jayden, who was born (28 weeks gestation) at the Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital, Australia, on March 06, 2006.

He had his Dad's chin and his Mum's nose.

When he was 2 weeks old, Jayden got very sick and finally doctors diagnosed him with NEC, a serious intestine infection.  He had surgery two weeks later and battled on for over another month.  Sadly the fight became too big and on May 12, 2006 we held him in our arms as we said goodbye.  He gave us so much and touched many hearts in his brief 67 days.

A brave wee soldier who will be in our hearts for always.

Jayden was born 12 weeks early because at this point in my pregnancy I suddenly and unfortunately contracted Pre-eclampsia and HELLP Syndrome (which is similar to Pre-eclampsia but with added complications). They are seen as 'silent illnesses' because usually women don't realise if they have one or the other - and there are many horror stories of doctors not even recognising when their patients have them.

In the aim of 'getting the word out' on two serious conditions every pregnant woman should be aware of, I belong to Australian Action on Pre-Eclampsia (AAPEC).
They are a small organisation, doing a wonderful job trying to achieve a very big goal.


Please say hello to Jayden's Bear:

Isn't he just beautiful?  We may not be able to cuddle Jayden's soft baby skin anymore, but having a wonderful fuzzy bear to squeeze brings so much comfort.

Tiny Footprints  (unknown author)

These are my tiny footprints
So perfect and so small
These tiny footprints
Never touched the ground at all.

Not one tiny footprint
For now I have wings
These tiny footprints
Were meant for other things.

You will hear my tiny footprints
In the patter of the rain
Gentle drops like angel tears
Of joy and not from pain.

You will see my tiny footprints
In each butterfly's lazy dance
I'll let you know I'm with you
If you give me just a chance.

You will see my tiny footprints
In the rustle of the leaves,
I will whisper names into the wind
And call each one that grieves.

Most of all, these tiny footprints
Are found in Mummy's & Daddy’s heart
Because even though I'm gone now
We'll never truly part.

A very brief version of Our Story appears in the "Parents Stories" section of the Preterm Infants' Parents' Association website:

Still With You (Anon) 

I am gone, not by your side – or so I’ve heard you say
But I am with you more than you know
Each and every day.
I’m there as you rise to the morning that you dread
I’m nestled up beside you
At night when you go to bed.
I watch while you’re sleeping
Or lying there awake
I’m with you when you say “How much more can I take?”
I watch with love
Every time I see you wipe the tears away
I’ll always be here for the one who thinks of me each day.
I see you smile seldom
Which is only a way to hide
I know the deep exhausting pain
That you feel inside.
I watch you gather all my things
To keep the memories alive
I know this is the only thing that helps you to survive.
I wish you knew that I was there
And know the pain you feel
And that you have a broken heart
That time will never heal.
Just know that I am with you
We really aren’t apart
I’m in every breath you take
Right there in your heart.
