Brittani has included her followers, giving updates on Crew’s condition and the emotions following his death. In one message she wrote, “I know God has a plan for this, but I’m really really mad at him right now. I cry behind the bathroom door while Jeff holds me, because in the room over everyone else gets to laugh and go on with their lives, and it makes me so angry. Running tests on my sons body to see how his organs are functioning before they take them. Pumping breastmilk just to pour it down the drain. Hearing a baby cry. Seeing a baby his age. Shopping Nordstrom for the dress I’ll wear to my son’s funeral. It’s all too much. I’m sorry to vent, but this is my heart. And I need all the prayers to get through this.”
After the young boy’s death, Brittani posted a message about how to deal with the tragedy, “I have found clarity in the decisions that we have to make. And right now we are making hand and footprint imprints, a family handprint tree and a fingerprint charm. Jeff and I take turns being strong for each other, and our kids have been so strong. We are just taking things, minute by minute, hour by hour, although it feels like a daze.”
She continued, “The huge amount of support that we have been shown is mind-blowing to us, and we truly do feel all of the love and prayers being sent this way.”
In one of the updates, Boren Leach described how the hospital staff lines the walls of the hallway as the baby is wheeled into the area where he will donate his organs. An unbelievably touching scene.
