Kara Bosworth imagines what life would be like with her baby boy who died last month: 'We miss you like crazy'
Kara Keough Bosworth lost her newborn on April 6 after intense labor. A month later, she uploaded a photo of her husband, Kyle holding their son, McCoy Casey, in a tight embrace with their foreheads touching. The post was supported by a heartwrenching caption that focused on what life would be like if he were still around. McCoy experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord during birth.
Dystocia is a birth injury and often, babies are born safely. It occurs when one or both of a baby's shoulders get stuck inside the mother's pelvis. But life had other plans for the little boy.
"You would have been 1 month old today. Your baby acne would be gearing up. You would be getting the hang of pacifiers, sorting out your days and nights, and figuring out how to focus your eyes without them involuntarily crossing," Kara wrote. went on to add about how she would have already bought a "complete boy's wardrobe" because Decker's (the couple's four-year-old daughter) clothes aren't really unisex.
Kara imagined that Kyle would be someone who would think babies don't need shoes but would change his mind once he saw "the little kicks paired with your chubby cankles." The note was warm, personal and tugged at heartstrings. "You’d be taking your first naps in the crib, and I’d be fussing about 'the schedule.' I’d be realizing that you, just like your sister, prefer Lefty and I’d be pumping Righty to try to bring ‘er up to speed. Decker would want to be holding you all the time, but you’d prefer to be spending your day wrapped around my chest. At least that much is still how it is, my sweet Mack. Decker still wishes she could hold you more," she added.
The actress ended it with: "And I still wear you on my heart all day. We miss you like crazy, baby."
Meanwhile, fans sent across their condolences with some even sharing how they have been where Kara is today.
"My heart breaks for you. I lost my daughter shortly after birth in 2003. Your son will always be with you," a user shared while another posted: "I definitely know how this feels, lost my baby girl 5 months ago."
"I'm so very sorry, I even can't imagine. Sending thoughts and prayers to you and your family during this very difficult time," a follower wrote while another expressed: "Sending strength, warmth, love, and hugs to surround you and help you get through the sharp pain of this grief."
Kara is also mourning the loss of her father, Matt Keough, who passed away earlier this week.
