Begging All Prayer Warriors

Please join me tonight in storming heaven for a dear friend.  I have mentioned her before to you-after many years of trying, with the help of Dr. Toth and Hilgers, she and her husband finally conceived and had a beautiful daughter on their first try post Dr. Toth's full treatment.  Their daughter is a little older than Charlie.  They ttc on the same cycle as us for #2 and were successful, due one week before us.  She had a healthy beautiful heartbeat.  And then today, it was gone.  She is ten weeks. I write to you through tears in disbelief.  This women is so good, so deserving, such an amazing faith-filled Catholic that lives it to her core.  I admire her so much, and I ached to my core to read this tonight.  Here is her email:

"Now today's appointment wasn't so good. The doctor did the doppler and of course it wasn't to surprising to not hear anything because I wasn't necessarily far enough along, but the follow-up US did not look hopeful. We didn't see any blood with the baby (when she switched to something that highlighted blood movement), and the baby seemed younger than it was supposed to be, and no heartbeat. So tomorrow we are doing a transvaginal with the specialist for this age. Slim chance that this US is wrong, but we aren't all that hopeful. The sack was still good quality, but I wonder if the progesterone shots were prolonging it. So there is a good chance I am miscarrying. I suspect the infection is the most likely culprit because the quality of that mucus build-up was so good. So please keep us in your prayers".


I know God can provide a miracle, should He see fit in His infinite wisdom.  I have called on you girls to pray before, and you have always come through ten fold.  Please, I am begging you selfishly, lift her and her husband and their child up in your prayers and plead God for the miracle they so deserve!

It's not selfish to ask for blessings for someone you love. That's generosity itself...your friend, her child, and her family will be in my prayers.

What torment for your friend. Of course we'll pray for her!

I guess selfishly wasn't exactly the right word, but you all know what I meant. I haven't heard from her. I told her she didn't have to contact me right away, just whenever she was ready (thinking, I know that having a list of people to tell with bad news can be daunting). I am assuming not hearing from her is a sign she is grieving. Should there have been a miracle, I would have expected she would have shouted it from rooftops. Thank you all for your amazing generosity in your prayers. I know she is swimming in the grace from them and it the only way she is making it through today and the next few weeks.

I heard from my friend last night:
"I really think we will miscarry since we didn't hear the heartbeat. But the US was delayed to tomorrow morning and we'll find out for sure. Then I have a more extensive appointment with the holistic midwife afterwards. The prayers will be much appreciated anyway." Keep praying please!

Yes-we can still be friends even though your from Kansas. Second Chances is a CUBS fun but I still read her blog ;) That is so cool about your masters-I have my master's in speech-language pathology and got into the field mostly because of Autism. I'm actually presenting at an Autism parent support group this Saturday and prepping for my talk right now. I want to tell you, too, that yours was one of the first blogs I stumbled on when seeking others like me. Ever since I have felt very called to pray for you-even more than the other bloggers (but I still pray for you girls!) When I go to pray for you all-you're the first one I think of! Maybe it was our Autism connection all along!

Definitely praying for your friend...my heart goes out to her!

Kaitlin, I emailed you! :)
Thanks for the prayers, everyone. My friend emailed today. She is definitely miscarrying. She is doing alright, you can tell that grace is surrounding her to get through this. She has about the best attitude you can. She said it is hard, but today was better and she is feeling the prayers. So thank you! You are amazing! Please continue to pray for peace and grace and that the miscarriage will happen naturally and relatively soon so she can relax on a much needed family vacation that was already planned as well as continue some job obligations that were already in the works prior.

Probably last update, but too good not to share, directly from my friends' mouth:
"Anyway thank you so much for your kindness for all those prayers on the blog. That just blew me away. Please send heartfelt thanks to them all and that I am sure my peace is because I am so surrounded in prayer."
How awesome is that?! Thanks again, guys, you are AMAZING!
