I'm sorry that I've been MIA for so long. I've been kind of down lately with trials and tribulation in just about every area of life--maybe some of which I will eventually blog about.
I'm really sad today. DH's sister (whom Daughter #2 went to stay with--in Hawaii--to help during her difficult pregnancy) ended up delivering the baby about 11 weeks prematurely over the 4th of July weekend. At first everything looked great and then they discovered a hole in the baby's stomach. They did surgery to repair the hole and everything looked good--until last night. Sadly the baby did not survive. Everyone is feeling rather shell-shocked and DH's sister and brother-in-law are just devastated.
Having been through 2 miscarriages, a loss at birth from a lethal birth defect and having a stillborn baby myself, I know a bit about loss and feel their pain. It's not a road easily traveled. I am so sorry that they have to go through this pain again as this is not the first baby they have lost either. Their first was born at 22 weeks and did not survive. They do have a growing, healthy little girl that is just a couple of days older than our little guy, Son #6.
Please pray for them. You can call them C & D (and their little daughter is S). The Lord will know who you are talking about. Also since our Daughter #2 is over there with all of this going on she is grieving as well. She is a serious baby lover and this is pretty heart breaking. TIA
