March News

March has been an interesting month for our family. My husband turned 30 this year, his mother turned 50 a few days later, and our oldest son turned 7 the week after that. We found out that we were expecting our 6th child, and that my husband would not be transferred to another store.

We have also had some less than pleasant things. A few minor injuries that ended up with a few trips to the doctor. Thankfully they only looked worse than they ended up being. A few days ago, our daughter ate some sort of pill off the floor at the store while I wasn't looking, and had a reaction to it. She started with a rash and hives, but thankfully it didn't get any worse than that. She still had to drink some charcoal and stay under observation in the ER for a few hours, but she ended up being just fine. I don't think she'll do that again for a while.

Now, for the difficult part. We found out yesterday that the baby that we were expecting, has perished. We don't know much except that it was alive two weeks ago. We don't know what could have caused the baby to die, nor when it happened exactly. This is our first confirmed loss, so it is rather difficult. We still need to tell the children, though I think they suspect something isn't right.

We are working through the grieving process, but so far we are holding up. We have had an outpouring of support from some of the ladies in our church, and it has been very much appreciated.

It will probably be a while before I resume blogging again, but don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. Just taking a break.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. I am sure it will be difficult to tell the other kids, but it sound like your church is a good support. Praise the Lord for brothers and sisters in Christ.
