One of my children was fine with internal organs, but not eyes or skin. I know that donating your entire body is a very different authorization than "organ donation" but I never stopped to think about which "organs" and they tell me eyes and skin are covered under "organ donation". Is this definition a national issue or State by State?

Some states have it separated on the organ donor card. You can check ALL or just organs or just Tissue. Other states when you signed the card, it is simply all. Actually the eyes can be taken after true death depending on the amount of time the heart has stopped beating.

I am from a culture that wears black for at least a year after the death of a close loved one. Usually a spouse because, as you say, it is somewhat "unnatural" to lose a child and there is no time period for that grief. In fact, I think, "til death do you part" from that grief. As a small child I knew MANY women who wore black for the rest of their lives after the death of a spouse. My beloved grandmother wore black after the death of my father...for many, many years afterward. 

I recently saw that one of the recommendations to treat PTSD is to go back to the place "it" happened, and that there is no beginning of recovery without that. My thoughts and prayers are with you...as always...as you go back and revisit the waiting area at the hospital. There will be pain, but every day has pain no matter where you go. And we feel your pain and grieve for you...as you grieve for them.

Missy, as a survivor of multiple traumas and having worked through PTSD myself, I will be in prayer for you as you face the trauma unit at Vanderbilt. I pray that God would bring healing through the pain and that He would be everpresent with you as you face the pain head-on.  Journaling your emotions can be very, very healing.  Don't edit anything that comes up...just let it flow.  And then try to find some alone time afterward to journal some more.  It can be very cathartic and very healing.  May God go before you on this trip and be with you and your family as you spend this precious time together.  Know that the rest of your family looks down upon you with love.

If you don't need to sell it yet I would hold off. Your children have had so much loss...loss of their home added to it...probably not a good thing. Get away...go...but hold up on the house sale. You can go away often, but really another loss for them might be the straw that broke the camel's back.

I had "the conversation" with my children and some of their friends when I visited for Thanksgiving and we were all together. 

1) One of my daughters emphatically said NO to organ donation and indicated that while she checks "no" for her license, they have gotten it wrong several times and she has needed to correct it after receive her license. That was a little scary. So now we know for sure that regardless of what they say her license says, her answer is NO.

2) I made it clear to my children that my answer is YES regardless of the circumstances including being declared "brain dead".

3) ... and I promised the rest of the participants in the discussion that I would ask you this, one person said that regardless of what your license says...they will NOT "harvest organs" without confirmation from "next of kin" beforehand. It seems to me you would not be writing about this if that were true, so I promised them I would ask you and get back to them. Might it be true in some States and not others? They all live in California.
