Well, I guess I've waited long enough...I might as well explain my reason for the slack on my blog. Some thought maybe I had fallen off the face of the earth. It's been a ROUGH 2 weeks to say the least. It all began July 16th. I happen to turn another year older that day and for some reason felt horrible about that. I started another age bracket (30 of all things). If that wasn't bad enough....I was to go for a doctor appt for confirm a new little arrival on the way which we had been very excited about. It was definintely confirmed, BUT that I probably would not carry this one very much longer. I went through 3 blood test that week and they all confirmed the doctors suspicion...I would be miscarrying soon. Doctors know best I guess because 5 days letter I did miscarry. We were devasted to say the least! This was the second loss in 14 months. While we know both babies are with Jesus, we still have that emptiness. We have been so thankful for our families & friends prayers & support during this time. Tony & I of course show our emotions two separate ways...he wants to just go go go and me....I've kind of went into a shell and just want to hide from it all. Don't really want to do anything, go anywhere, have anything to do with anything or anyone at time. Anyway, just wanted to give you an update as to what is happening in our little world here. I was hoping to update with good news on the 16th but it did not happen that way. If you think about it, please just say a prayer for us. We've been told by well meaning people, at least you have two! That doesn't help the pain any!!! My mom gave me a book to read (THANKS SO MUCH MOM) entitled "Empty Arms" and believe me it was sure hard to read that book through the tears. I read the whole book in a couple of hours. I will probably go through it a couple of more times at least. Well, I didn't intend on writing a book, but many have asked where I've disappeared to so instead of writing it FIFTY times (a little exaggeration maybe LOL) I figured I'd just blog it and let them read it there. May God Bless everyone of you!

I'm so sorry! Hugs, hugs, hugs. The Empty Arms book (if it's the same one) is fantastic, yes, hard to read but great info. I will be praying for you. Thanks for bringing us up to date.
