Just to let everyone know...

Last Tuesday I went for my 12 week ultrasound and we found out that my baby passed away. This has been so hard. This pregnancy has been rough from the beginning, but I thought that I was finally out of the woods. I got to have a dozen ultrasounds done in the first trimester to check on her, so I got to see her grow right before my eyes. Last Wednesday morning I had to have surgery to have her removed. Sorry to have waited a week to let you all know, it's is just now that I can even manage to type anything out. I want to thank my sister for being there at that horrible doc appt and for not leaving my side for the following three days. Seriously...I don't know what I would have done without you there! Randy was gone all week, and that made it so much harder.

I am still so very sad, but I am just trying to focus on the three wonderful kids that God has already blessed me with. Randy and I still want to have a fourth child, and we plan to start trying this October. This baby will never ever be forgotten though....ever. Tomorrow I have a doc appt to get the tests back on the baby, My doctor ran some chromosome tests on her to see if she could find out what happened.

I also want to thank my blogging buddy Lu. She is so strong, and as I was being rolled to the OR, I was thinking of her and her daughter Olivia. She inspires me so much...I am so blessed to know this incredible woman! You can click here to be inspired by Lu!

I also want to thank my husband, for being so wonderful and caring, I love you so much Randy! JennyKate sent me the most beautiful flowers along with the best candy ever last week! Thanks JennyKate so are so sweet and I just love you so much! My mom and dad are so sweet, they are going to put a stone for baby DeWitt in the family cemetery. Thank you mom and dad for being so sensetive and supporting.

I hope everyone has a brilliant week. The weather in Colorado this week looks like it will be amazing. I am going to take the kids to the zoo and try to make this a wonderful week.
