I am so saddened to write this update. I had to bring Kristjana to the ER early this evening. We lost the baby.
I would appreciate your prayers for Kristjana. She had a very rough evening, and the doctors have admitted her for at least one evening because of pain. Kenny and I just got home. The little guy is resting comfortably now in his crib. We’ll be back over to the hospital in the morning.
Kristjana struggled on whether to announce she was pregnant before the 12 week mark. She struggled more whether to share and write about the pain and symptons she was experiencing the past 7 days. Even with our little one ending up in heaven way too soon, I am glad she did write. Your emails and comments were good therapy to Kristjana and, so it seems, to many other people as well.
I believe in sharing good news, even if the news is as delicate as a pregnancy. That way friends and family, and blogger friends can be praying along with us. We will be grieving the loss of this precious life, and praying for another opportunity to share with you that another life is on it’s way. It is difficult, but especially during a night like this I hang on to my favorite verses, Rejoice in the Lord always. I say it again, rejoice. Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus…. Amen.
Rejoicing in the Lord, albeit with a heavy heart…….
