Stupid, lame, idiot-head news.

Sorry for sharing bad news this way, but I can't face making phone calls to everyone. We lost our baby. Again. Miscarriages suck. We are devastated of course, but trying to look forward and understand God's plan for our family. It's comforting and also sad how many people have also had to suffer through this. It's seems to be way too common. We are extra disappointed as we thought we had lost the baby in January, but then had an ultrasound and got to hear the heartbeat. It's a bit of a roller coaster. As sad as I am I can't help but think of others who are struggling through much harder times right now. Darren's little sister who is fighting cancer, Julie's beautiful cousin who lost her husband, friends who have struggled with infertility for years... you see why we can't wallow too much. We have been so blessed in our life together, and we know we will have children at some point. So in the meantime I will enjoy some sushi while I can and plan for the future. Oh, and we will probably go on another cruise.

Marianne, that sucks so much, and I'm so, so sorry. Wallow as much as you'd like. I wish I could do something to make it easier, but since I really can't, just know that I'm thinking of you.

Marianne and Clayton, I don't know what to say except that we love you guys so much. Let's go to Disneyland. Love, Shelli and Bob.

Hi Marianne. Sorry to hear the news. Know we're thinking of you. I just found your blog from your email, it seems like you guys are having too much fun with those cruises. Call me next time you're in California, we live 5 min. from Disneyland. Take care. Cristy

Ugghh! I hate this! You have had a crappy crappy last few months. Is it really a good thing to force yourself to heal by slapping yourself in the face with others' leukemia and stuff? I mean, perspective is good and you have a good attitude...but I'm with Shauna. Wallow away. Thinking of others' pain doesn't replace or diminish your own. It just intensifies the strain of your own mourning. Which puts stress on your heart and in turn, your body. Sorry if I keep sounding like a hollistic-obsessed new-age freak. You are such a good sport and are so eager to discuss everyone else's stuff before your own. I admire you so much!
