I don’t mean this to be entirely depressing and morbid. But a few people have asked me how my sister was coming along, since I posted a message a few weeks/months ago about how she was pregnant and I was freaking out. Everyone gave me these great tips on how to approach her, sent me patterns for baby things to make and was completely happy for me and for her.
Well, the baby wasn’t developing and she had to have a D & C. It was kind of horrible, I admit. My sister who NEVER cries called me in tears wailing, “Laura, it was HORRIBLE.” And I couldn’t do anything to make her feel better.
But the good news is that she IS better now. She seems strong, as usual, and is ready to try again, disgusted with the doc’s suggestion that she wait for two months. So she’s not scared off, she’s healthy, and even though she’s sad because she really feels that she lost a BABY, she’s still got her chin up and is moving on.
Thanks to all who encouraged us both (me and indirectly, my sister).
