A heavy heart

Today’s ultrasound didn’t look promising. The doctor says he had hoped the exam would have shown more progress in the last week. And although he claims all hope is not lost, this is not a good sign. He has asked me to come back for another blood test on Monday to check my levels again, but it will probably be Wednesday before we get the results.

Unfortunately, Max is away in Brazil until next Thursday, and I had to share this unhappy development with him over the phone. We are both sad and anxious, but also realize this is completely out of our control. It’s certainly a hard pill to swallow, but we will get through this—whatever happens.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and well wishes over the last few days. Rest assured, I am doing fine. You’re a wonderfully supportive community and it helps that I can share both my ups and downs with you.

Aw, I am sorry to hear that the news was not more positive. Also, it's tough to take when your husbie is not along with you. I'm thinking of you guys, and sending some positive vibes your way.

*Hugs*

I think it takes a lot of guts to put your life out there the way you do. That being said, I will wait on pins and needles for the results of your bloodwork.

No matter what happens, you can take comfort in the fact you've made it this far and that odds are, it will happen again (if need be, that is).

I will be including you in my daily prayers, Diane. I know how stressful health issues can be, but in your case we all need to be ever mindful that you are carrying a child. So, I will be praying for your child as well.
