An Update

I have been wanting to send this update out for several days now, just didn't really know what to say. For those of you who haven't already heard, we did loose our baby boy. We are incredibly sad and heartbroken, but have to think unselfishly and know that he is in a much better place where he is so loved and he will not have to suffer a single day. We take comfort in this although our hearts are broken. I know that one day we will get to hold him for eternity and that makes me smile. I suppose that is really the only thing that can get a person through something like this. The kindness that has been shown to our family is truly amazing. We have had incredible meals for the last 4 weeks provided by our awesome neighborhood, as well as the football coaches wives. That has been such a blessing because there have been days I could barely get out of bed. One of my dearest friends that lives in Chicago came down to stay with us last week for a few days and it was so great to see her. My mom has been here almost the entire month and a half through all of our hardship. I have so many people that have contacted me through facebook, cards and email and I thank each of you. I am not the easiest person to communicate with when I am going through something difficult. I become extremely introverted and sort of shut down. So I want everyone to know that I really do appreciate all the effort you have put forth. I am slowly trying to get back into a regular routine. Hopefully with a little more time it will become easier.

I also am wanting to let anyone who ordered a calendar to know that if you no longer want one I completely understand. If you do please let me know ASAP. I am making them and want to make sure that I have enough for anyone that still wanted one. If you will message via facebook, or post on this blog post I will make sure I get yours made. If you are not in the Owasso area and are going to need yours shipped I have a previous post that addresses shipping. If you have already sent me your check I will be shipping your calendar out by the end of the week. For all the local people, I will message you as soon as yours is done. They will be at Surcee' for pick up.

Again thank you all for all your prayers and support. This has been a terrible time for us but we are looking forward to happy times very soon.

Amnio Results

I am writing this post with a very heavy heart. We got the results of our amnio and our baby has been diagnosed with Trisomy 13. Obviously we are devastated by this news. Our Dr. has given us no hope that our baby will be able to survive. Because of the chromosomal problems along with the severe heart problem there are so many health problems that our Dr thinks that the baby will not survive the pregnancy. We know that this is going to be a rough few weeks/months but we know that our baby will be made perfect in heaven and we will see him again, that brings us so much comfort.
Soooo many people have been so generous with the fundraiser. I will never forget each and every person that has been supportive of us during this time. It has meant more than I can ever express. I would like to send the money back to those of you who have already sent us checks. I would love to still make calendars for those who want one, but I completely understand if you don't and would like your money. I have had so much fun making the calendars and it has given me something to keep my mind busy, so just by ordering one you helped me so much.
If you would still like one please just leave a post on the wall. I will be sending all other checks out this weekend.

Feeling Anxious

Since the minute I found out that our baby had a heart problem I've wanted to know more. I have hounded any and every person that I could that may know something about babies and heart problems and even chromosomal problems. I have spent countless hours googling and reading and researching. This week we hope to found out more about our little peanut. I have an amnio scheduled for tomorrow and am seeing a high risk dr. Friday. This week it seems very likely we will get some answers. I have been waiting for this week........and all of the sudden I am terrified to know. We want to know and we need to know. I just am afraid of what we are going to find out. I think I have prepared myself for the worst, but of course I am hoping and praying for the best. I am so thankful that Drs. are able to run certain tests that allow us to know as much about our baby as possible. This is so important so that we can be ready and we can get the right Drs. who can get a plan of action together. It's just all so overwhelming. Please pray that we get good news this week. Thank you all so much for support and prayers!!!!!
