My Update

I am sitting here and I am going to try and put down in words what has been probably the worst if not most terrifying night of my life. I can't even explain how all your emails and comments comforted me through this time. Most of you did not know that my husband had gone to Georgia with Alexis for a week, so he was not here last night, but he will be here soon---I endured this pain alone. Have you ever heard a man cry--well it has got to be the most gut wrenching sound I have ever heard. Please forgive me I am not making any sense--but I want to get all this down while it is fresh in my memory--while it is a memory I would not like to have happened it is a memory that will never be forgotten by me. I have never in my whole life felt such pain that I felt last night. The bleeding started to get heavier as the day went on--and at about 7:30 p.m., cramping started--and it was progressively getting worse---they were like ten minutes apart and then by 1:00a.m. in the morning they peeked at the most pain I have ever felt--I literally thought at that very moment I may die---I tried to be as quiet as I could not to wake Tony or the baby--but of course I failed, and had to have Tony help me with the baby---the baby just wanted me to hold him and nurse, but the pain made me double over and I did what I could to comfort him but then I would have to go into the bathroom again--I even threw up a few times over the pain--at about 2:30--I called my sister and she came right over and took over the care of my baby---and at about 4:00 the pain had tapered off and I think I gave all I could give and no more--I could not believe all that came out of me--sorry to be so graphic. I am completely numb--it has not yet hit me emotionally yet--I don't think.----I am so very sad, I am heart broken---That is all for now----I just want to thank you all for the support, never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would have friends all over the world praying for me---thank you!!

You poor thing. It must have been very difficult not having Kevin with you. There really is no way to describe the pain of a miscarriage is there? I am glad that the physical pain is over for you and Kevin will be home to help you emotionally. It will take a while you are very strong.

Oh my dearest Julieann,
I am so sorry for the loss of your little one. I can only imagine how much more difficult this is for you without ur darling hubby. Please know that you, kevin, and ALL of your children will be in my prayers. Having lost 6 children which are now in the loving care of our sweet Lord, I so completely know and understand what u are going through, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Sometime in the future please take comfort in knowing even though your little one is no longer with you here on earth. Just always remember God always has and always will care for your little one. When your arms ache to hold the one whom you have lost, know that God's arms are full with your little one in his care. My dear Julieann, my heart and prayers are yours at this time.
With all my Love and Prayers,

Oh Julieann, I am so so sorry you had to go through that. I will just keep you in my prayers as well as the rest of your family. You know God has his arms around you right now!!! The physical pain is gone but the other pain may remain for quite some time. I will be praying that you will feel peace. God bless you Julieann

Oh ((Sweetie)), I'm so sorry. Praying the Lord holds you and Kevin tenderly in the hollow of His hand while you pass through this storm.

I too, remember my miscarriage being EXTREMELY painful. It is after all, labor. I'm so sorry that you are having to endure this trying time. You have been in my prayers all day, and will continue to be. I pray for Kevin, too. This is so hard on men. Everyone expects the woman to be upset, but they don't take the husband into consideration much of the time. Rest as much as you can.

Oh, my sister. I am praying for the Lords' peace over you and the family. And God's healing. I have been there, so I know the lonely feeling and the hurt. Just know that you are surrounded with many of us who embrace you spiritually and are praying!!!

Oh Julieann! It breaks my heart to read this. I am so sorry you had to go through this alone. It is one of the worst feelings in the world. I also went through the same thing a few years ago and my dh was also not able to be with me.
I'm sending lots of hugs and prayers your way.
I've been away on vacation with my family and just got back so that's why I'm just checking in with you. Please know that I am praying for you and your family right now.
