Taking Time Off

For those who do not know, I experienced a miscarriage this past week. (Ash Wednesday). Yesterday, I had the necessary surgery to allow my body to heal and remove the remains of our 11th child. I had a miscarriage back in 2003 as well. There wasn't something to see and I was out cold anyway, but the doctor will have a chromosone work up done of our baby's DNA so we can know if it was a boy or a girl and what if anything can be known, caused death in utero.

So I ask for your prayers and patience, as I heal and take this week off from blogging. I'll probably find 15 things to write about as a result of claiming not to post this week, but that is the nature of things. Will post again come Sunday. Thanks for reading and I hope by then, I can write something to make you smile or even laugh.

Sherry: I stopped by today to let you know I was giving you the "Premio Dardos" award for excellence in writing, and discovered your sad news.

I'm so sorry. Please know my prayers are with you. There's no award in the world that can touch what you are going through right now!

Walking the way of Lent together...

Heidi

I was thinking of you again...so I came back for another hug. I brought a hanky too.

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.
