Unexpected and Hearbroken

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

A dear blog friend, Tanika, and I have been through the rough things that only those who've lost babies can get... That hurt, that grief...  She lost three daughters due to IC.  I was actually the person who referred her to Dr. Haney, sight unseen actually, where she had her TAC placed.  She had a beautiful pregnancy with her son, Ethan, who just turned a year old a bit back, and was anxiously awaiting the birth of their second son, Israel.  Her c-section was scheduled for the end of this week.  Everything was fine... Perfect pregnancy...  A few days before her c-section, Israel's heartbeat stopped.  She recently delivered her beautiful, perfect son... As I write this, she is probably selecting the outfit to wear to his funeral, which is today at 2pm.

There is a lump in my throat that wont go away.  Tears that lace my eyelids that I try to wipe away so that the kids dont know I'm upset.  There simply arent words... But if you could find some and pop over to her blog to let her know that you are with her today in spirit, I'd be appreciative.

Soo soo sad. I read about Tanika on another one of her friends blog just yesterday. My heart absolutely breaks for her and her family. I know that I've had it rough, but what she has had to endure seems almost unthinkable. I will pray for her comfort every single day.
