Sad News

Just an update on our pregnancy... This past thursday I went in for my 17 week appointment and the doctor was unable to detect a heartbeat. After an ultrasound confirmed things, we scheduled surgery for a D&E the following day. Needless to say we are all still in shock, but the surgery went well. I am feeling quite a bit better physically today and over time I know the emotional struggles will pass. The doctor couldn't see any obvious problems with the baby or the umbilical cord upon removal, but further testing will be done on the baby as well as myself in a couple weeks to see if we can determine what went wrong. We may never know, but find comfort in knowing that this was nature's way of taking care of an unhealthy baby. Thank you to all for your concern and prayers in our behalf.
