They've asked me to keep their anonymity, but here's what's going on. These friends, a husband and wife, are about 8 weeks pregnant. Or at least they were. She miscarried at the beginning of the week. They think it was a twin because the doctor thought they saw another baby when they did the ultrasound after the miscarriage. Unfortunately they couldn't hear a heartbeat and there is a large blood clot that is causing a problem. (I know I'm not describing this all that well, because this is not an area that I have much experience in.)
They are going back to the doctor today and the prayer is that they will hear a heartbeat, that the mother will be ok, and that the issues with the blood clot will be gone. Please focus your prayers and positive energy on my friends as they go through this day. I feel awful that I haven't been able to get this info out there for everyone before now. Even if you see this after today please pray for their health and emotional well being.
We know that everything will be ok. What's supposed to happen will happen. It's an easy thing to say, but can be difficult to embrace. The more support we can send their way the more they will be strengthened.
