Life

Sometimes life just up and bites you in the ass.. know what I mean??

About 4 weeks ago - eldest daughter - after months and months of trying - announced to the family she was pregnant. We were all so happy for her.. I was ecstatic. My heart felt so full. I was happy in my life.. she was finally pregnant.. baby daughter had bought a house.. All was right with the world.

A week after her joyful announcement she called to tell me she had miscarried. I cried my heart out for her.

But life goes on.. and I tried to bolster her morale with the thought that at least she knew she could GET pregnant.

Then on Friday evening I got a message. She was being admitted to the hospital. It turns out that the miscarriage - really wasn't a miscarriage...... but rather an ectopic pregnancy that had been missed.

She was operated on Saturday morning......... they had to take the tube and her appendix. The placenta had grown out of the tube and attached itself to her appendix.

She was sent home on Sunday afternoon. I visited her yesterday and was pleased to see how good she looked..... and despite some pretty nasty aches and pains her spirits were good. While they had been in there poking about.. they took a look at the other tube and the ovaries. She got the word that she can still make babies.

One day soon (fingers crossed) I will be announcing the count down to a new member of the family.......... BUT for now...... lots of tender loving care.. and a little humour to brighten the day............

I am sorry your daughter has had to go through such an awful time... I do hope she recovers well and fully and that there will be much future joy for her and for all of you.

Hope her recovery goes well. This must have been a most traumatic time for all involved.

Just a little reminder of how precious every moment of our life is, and the more we can appreciate the sunshine, the less menacing the storms will seem.

I'm so sorry for her loss. I think I have a pretty good idea of her pain, and I'm sure a lot of us do. When I had my first miscarriage I was shocked to learn of how many women I knew who had miscarried as well.
