This past week turned out to be one of the toughest weeks of our life. Not only did we go in for a routine ultrasound and find that our baby’s heart had stopped beating but we also had to endure a D&C procedure two days later so that Donna’s body could start the healing and recovery process. For the past week we have just shut our doors and fell off the radar, that’s pretty much how we handled things the first time too. We just spend a lot of time w/ one another watching movies, talking, and being lazy.
For the most part Donna and I are both doing well, we still think about it, I caught myself glancing at baby strollers the other day in Target while I was waiting on a prescription to be filled and yesterday while we were in Wal-Mart I caught Donna looking at children’s clothing, Yesterday afternoon we both decided it was time to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air. She and I both are huge fans of Hibachi style food so we decided to drive to Little Rock for some KOBE. We had an awesome dinner, even managed to laugh a little bit. I think it was somewhere on the drive home that I realized we were going to be just fine (and believed it this time).
Donna and I appreciate your thoughts and comments on Facebook and Tweets more than you can imagine, sorry if we didn’t respond in person but there was simply too many of you, please accept my apologies. See, the entire week we were hermits by choice, just wanting to be left alone to sort things out. Occasionally we would pull up those tweets, comments, and emails and read them, sometimes aloud to one another. Your words of comfort have helped us get through this whole thing. In addition to that some of you sent flowers and food, completely out of the blue, one particular floral arrangement almost brought me to tears, it was from my #RefreshCA friends. Needless to say, our living room looks like a florist and I have gained 20 pounds by now. You have no idea how much this all has meant to us and I could literally sit here all day and try to express our gratitude and how much you guys mean to us in words but still come up short so I will just say this, we love you guys and will never forget your thoughtfulness.
If you are a client, I apologize if I am running a few days behind on your projects right now, I promise I will get caught up this weekend. If you need me for anything, just holler, my phone is no longer going straight to voicemail. I even shaved off that Grizzly Adams looking beard thing that I had going on last night before we went to dinner, I know that Donna had to appreciate that. I’m not saying I am back to 100% just yet, but it won’t be long…
