Kerry

My stomach is in knots and my heart is filled with tears as I sit here and attempt to comprehend how this awful disease can take the lives of 2 babies in the same family.

Kerry is being induced tomorrow morning, on Easter. It’s cruel and unfair but her body is quickly deteriorating and the focus is now on maternal life vs. fetal. Baby Josey is just too small for much to be done.

I’m here (not in KY like I wish I was), I am going to hold Kerry’s hand from afar.  I can only do so much, just because I have been through this doesn’t make it any easier on Kerry. I guess I am just someone she can turn to that ‘knows’ and we all know how valuable those women are that each have in our life after we lost our babies. I am going to do as much as I can with my heavy heart, even if it’s just to be able to listen.

I don’t have much more to say, I had a fun post about our trip to Disney all drafted up. But now it doesn’t seem so fun anymore. This is just heartbreaking.

I'm praying for her, Josey, & your whole family. It's utterly tragic and unfair. & to do it on Easter is even worse, but her life is worth saving. I also hope the doctors can find a reason this happened to 2 people in the same family so it doesn't happen again. I'm so sorry :(

My heart is with you and your family right now....I told her I wish I could take this all away..I dont have the words to make this easy on anyone...I will pray for your strength as well, this will be hard for you too. God bless you and God bless that baby. I didnt even realize it was Easter til you just said that...OMG why?? I know I should be passed the why stage but why do this to her for 22 days and have it all end the same? What was the point of this? Sorry im not helping but im so upset too...im crying with you guys...I prayed to my Alyssa to protect them..hoping for better days ahead...xoxo

Praying for you and Kerry, as the reality must be so painful for you. It's as if you are reliving Nolan's story all over again.

Many Prayers Ashley, as my heart is so heavy for you. May God wrap you all in his arms.

I found my way here from Niki's blog some time ago. I am so sorry for what your family is enduring, going through this nightmare a second time. I can't help but hold out a glimmer of hope and have prayed that somehow this baby is bigger and stronger than they think and can be saved. If not, I hope her journey into the arms of God is a peaceful one. So sorry. Thinking of Nolan, Josey, and your whole family.

I'm still holding a glimmer of hope too. But gees, it sucks. And falling on Easter too - sigh.

What you can offer Kerry, more than a lot of other people, is an intimate understanding of PE and how crippling it is on your body, plus of course, potentially (because that glimmer's still there) understanding how traumatic and horrendous that grieving process is. You'll be there to hug her months and years from now when she needs it even more than ever.

Thinking of you all. Hugs.
