Medical News

What medical news? Well, last weekend started off with a visit to the ER, and not for Tyler. No, Dan was the one playing on the playground equipment, and when he tried to fit through a space made for someone a wee bit smaller than himself, the metal pole just didn't give. Here he is with his 6 stitches:

The other news, I actually had a miscarriage this weekend. After three years of trying to GET pregnant, we faced the problem of STAYING pregnant. Right now, I feel surprisingly calm about things. I had really kept my guard up for the 2 weeks I knew I was pregnant. I have suffered many disappointments over the last couple years, and I was really trying to protect myself. There also were some indications from the beginning that this pregnancy might not make it to term, so I was kind of expecting the worst. I have been sore for three days, and let out all my tears today, and feel ready to move forward. Just before we found out that I was pregnant, we had completed an application for a private adoption agency, and we feel good about going back to that option and moving forward with it. I really feel that Heavenly Father is guiding us and is in charge. I sure don't understand what he is doing all the time, but I have learned to trust Him.

We just remember our MANY, MANY blessings in times like these Angela.

At least Dan got to keep his nose! Must remind him that he's not as little as he used to be :)

Oh Angela - I am SO SORRY!! I can't even imagine how you are feeling.

Rachel Elaine said...

Angela, I cannot imagine what you must be facing. I know you said something similar to me, which is a little ironic I suppose. But really, even though people may face simliar trials, the never really *know* what someone else is feeling...
I am so glad you have calm in your life. I know that it is a relative calm, but I also know that Heavenly Father really can carry us through these times.

I don't know if you already have, but maybe you should ask for a comfort blessing. That is one thing that really helped me through my recent experience. When I was so consumed with what was going on, I felt like my prayers were not coherent and the audible words of a priesthood blessing really helped.

((HUGS))

You guys have had a couple of rough weekends. I am so sad to hear your news. I pray that you and Dan can have the comfort that you need right now.

You know I am here for you, Ang! Let's go get those pedis! We need a girls night out! I love you. You are so strong and positive through it all. Let me know if you need to cry or eat chocolate.

First, I was laughing pretty hard picturing Dan trying to squeeze through a small hole on the playground. . . . .good dad! And the pitiful picture was just icing on the cake.

My thoughts and love is with you-- sorry for the sad news.

Ohh, I'm so sorry. I wish I was like the women offering a girls' night out. I'm afraid we're a little far away...unless you're coming home for Christmas! My prayers will be with you.
