Okay, now I get it about the cramping. I never had that with the other two losses, but I sure as hell do now. In a way, I am almost grateful. At least if it is going to be definitive, I don't have to wait until Thursday to get told that it is definitive. I can go ahead and grieve, and figure out what to do next. I only wish tomorrow was not the Kraken's 4th birthday party - that has the potential to get complicated.

I told a friend earlier this evening that I wonder now how many tragedies my own parents hid from my eyes when I was a child. The Kraken is blissfully oblivious as she races around the house with her cousin, no idea that the sister or brother she wanted is quietly ebbing away.

Thinking of you. I hope you've got plenty of people helping you out tomorrow.

So sorry.

I truly hope that the Kraken has a lovely birthday today, and I hope that you are taken care of.

Angels to watch over you.

I'm so sorry, Heather.

I hope the birthday party goes well today, and that the new medical news may be helpful in the future.

For crying out loud. This really and truly sucks... Wish I could think of better, more eloquent ways to touch the pain you must be feeling.
