Dear Petloss Family,

I don't even know whether this we be posted but I'm asking all of you to please offer up a prayer for my daughter's unborn baby.  We just found out today that she's having a little girl, but there is something unusual about the way her heart looked on the ultrasound and she is scheduled to have a 2nd level ultrasound with a perineonatologist tomorrow morning.   Please, please pray that this sweet, innocent child will be alright. 

With much love and gratitude...

Thank you all for your prayers.  It was a difficult day.  My daughter, Stephanie went this morning for the Level 2 ultrasound.  What they found is called an echogenic foci.  It's a calcium deposit within the left ventricle.  Since she had a test called a triple screen and it showed a 1 in 500 risk of Down's syndrome, they wanted to offer her an amniocentesis, since this is clinically correlated with increased incidence of Down's.  She had the amniocentesis and should get preliminary result either tomorrow or Friday.  I continue to pray as I hope all of you will.  You have no idea how much it means to me and to her.  Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I will let you know the results of the testing when they are made available to us.

Dearest Carol,

Thank you for always caring about all of us.  You are so dear................. and I know that you understand, just what I'm going through.  Prayers are powerful stuff, and I know I need to walk in faith to believe everything will be alright.  It's just very hard to do right now.....but I'm trying my best and that will have to be good enough.  Your support is my strength...thank you my friend!

Love....Donna


Aurichwolf,

You are such a strong woman.....thank you for your support.  It means so much to me to know that I can always come here with whatever concerns me and I will get real responses from loving, caring people.  You have all become a lifeline for me in a way I'm sure you don't fully understand.  I'm a strong woman too, I know that, but there are just some things that one cannot deal with alone and this is one of those times I need all of you.  Thank you for being there.  The candle is beautiful and such a sweet, thoughtful thing to do.  I  know this little girl will bring me immense "Joy"  Already I feel such a bond with her.  Thank you for your continued prayers until she is here safe and sound where she belongs!

Love.....Donna


Diana, Di, Donna, JennyH, Georgeann and Katherine,

It feels so empty to keep saying thank you, but I do thank you all for your
prayers and concern.  I'm so proud of my daughter, she's trying so hard to be strong.  She is a strong woman, who helps save other people's lives as a trauma nurse. It's just so painful watching her go through this.......I don't know what else to do.  So I thought of all of you here, who I know understand grief very well and are so loving and caring and I came here .I too pray that God's Angels are watching over each and every one of you as you travel that difficult road of grief, just as you have offered your prayers to me and my family. Jenny, I will also keep your grandbaby girl in my heart and prayers as well.  Again.....thank you all, it means so much.

With much love and sincere thanks..
Donna (Rudy & Rileysmom)

Dear Donna, I am sending you, your daughter, and the rest of your family my prayers that your granddaughter is ok and that the amino does not show any Dwon's syndrome. How far along is she?  I am now the proud mom of twin girls and since I was over 35 at the time and with twins there were always so many things that could go wrong. I was a basketcase throughout my pregnancy but everything turned out completely normal.  I have heard several stories from friends and friends of friends where they had things that showed up on ultrasounds and from amino's that said their babies were going to have severe problems and that it turned out that the babies were born completely healthy with no problems at all. In one such case this woman was told her baby did not have a brain and would not survive being born without one so they suggested she terminate the pregnancy and she refused to. Turns out the baby was born and did in fact have a normal healthy brain and was completely normal.  So please hang in there and let us know the results of the amino. We will all be praying for you.

Hugs and prayers,
Karen

Dear Donna,
I just found your thread and want you to know that your precious granddaughter, her Mom, and you are in my prayers.  I want to echo Karen's words: a dear friend of mine was advised by a very reputable doctor to undergo a medical abortion due to abnormalities which repeatedly showed up on her sonograms. There were many "dangers" including Down's Syndrome.  Kate decided that she would love this special little one no matter what and  she steadfastly refused to do follow the advised course of action.  We were all very concerned that she was making the wrong decision.  Libby is now a beautiful, healthy, bright, and normal 12 year old who is entering 7th Grade.

Keep on believing.  I am praying for both Mom and Baby to be held in His loving care, and for their good health and well being.  I am also praying for strength and peace for you and your entire family. I will be waiting to hear any news from you.

Sending warm hugs and positive thoughts,

To all of my dear friends here at Petloss,

Finally some encouraging news!  They called today and the preliminary results are NEGATIVE for Downs Syndrome...........thank God!  They are still running the remainder of tests to look for any other potential problems or birth defects but we feel as though we can take a deep breath and relax alittle!
Please know that I will never forget your prayers for this child, and I will keep each of you in mine every day!  Prayers are so powerful, and I have each and every one of you to thank!  God Bless All of You, my dear friends!

Melissa - Your prayers for healing and radiant angels to surround us all and calm our fears certainly worked.  I slept like a baby myself last night....and believe me it's been awhile since that was possible! I do feel God's presence, helping me to remain calm in the midst of all of this.  I have always tried to live by Proverbs:  Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  I must have repeated that a thousand times in the past 3 days.  That and, "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."  I don't think I have ever been more proud of my daughter than I was yesterday.  I know she was so frightened but held on, knowing in her heart that she would deal with whatever  came her way.  I pray that the rest of the tests will also be favorable and that we can settle back and look forward to this new grandchild with great anticipation and renewed hope for a happy and full life for her! Either way, she will be loved alot!  Thank you for your cyber-friendship!  So many times I have wished that we could all meet someday.......perhaps that could happen in the future!  I know I would love all of you....I already love your hearts!

Kate - First off I want to tell you that I love Gus' garden.....and Carol (Carewolf) placed him in it, in exactly the place he would have laid!  Second , I want to thank you for caring enough to respond and give your prayers to my grandbaby!  I so want to take her in my arms and tell her how much we all prayed for her and her health............and someday I will!  In my heart and mind you are now part of her healing......thank you for that my friend! If ever I can do the same for you.....I am here!


Karen - I know that this is a difficult time for you with P's Bridgeday and all, so I want to say a special thanks for your response.  You're probably not that much older than my daughter......I could probably be your mom (ha!)_

Stephanie is 31 and she's exactly 20 weeks pregnant! You nailed it when you said there are so many things that can go wrong.....and yes.....she has been a basketcase! She is a trauma nurse and highly skilled, so she knows far more than the average lay person and that increases her anxiety level tremendously. I'm hoping and praying that all of the tests will come back normal, so she can finally just enjoy her pregnancy.  I don't think there is anything that compares with feeling life inside of you!  I want her to be able to savor all of that as a mom.  I'm sure you know what I mean!  How old are your girls?  I'll bet they are beautiful........don't you just feel so lucky?!  I think I've said this to you before, but I'll say it again........I feel certain "P" had a hand in it all!  I think I remember you saying you lost him before you got pregnant....am I right?  I know he is your heart, as Rudy is mine....but I believe he is still with you, Karen!  Please keep intouch....as I told Melissa, I would so love to meet all of you someday.  Maybe that could happen....wouldn't it be fun?!  Take care, and again, thank you for caring!


Joanne- Last.....but not least my dear friend!  I feel such a connection to you...........thank you for your prayers!  It was so good to read of your friends experience and to have it turn out so wonderful!  God Bless her sweet Libby!  I pray that I will be able to see my beautiful, healthy, bright granddaughter enter the 7th grade and beyond! My faith has been shaken, but I haven't stopped believing, it's what's kept me going these past 3 days. All of you have given me hope, that this beautiful child, that I already love, can have a full and healthy life!  Thank you for giving me some of your strength to keep believing, and for praying for peace!  It must be working, because I was able to let it go today, even before we got the 1st piece of good news.......God works in mysterious ways.......and some of them are called friends! 
 
Much Love To All of You!
Donna(Rudy & Rileysmom)
Steph's mom too!!!!!

Dearest Rileysmom and Steph's mom too, I just got a pang in my heart as I read your post. My name is Donna too and I am awaiting the birth of my first grandchild, a darling little girl, at the end of July. Needless to say my heart goes out to you and Steph and your entire family. I am so glad you got encouraging news and I will pray as hard as I can that your sweet little granddaughter will be just fine. The power of prayer is amazing and so many of your friends are sending prayers and best wishes to you and your family. I am going to light a candle under GRAND for you. Please know how much I care. Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom

Every time Shadow pops into my mind today(a million times no doubt) It will be a reminder to switch it over to thoughts of this tiny girl and will pray for her with all my heart! I'm very happy about the good news updates and look forward to seeing pics of this little sweetheart when she does arrive:o)
when is she due?

Good luck & hugs to you and the whole family!

Dear Donna,  I am so glad the early testing shows negative.  I personally know the pain of an affliction in a granddaughter.  My Caitlin is 9 yrs old now and is diagnosed with Rett syndrome which affects most areas of her life.  She is non verbal and not potty trained  with few motor skills and now loosing her walking.  I pray your grandbaby does not go through any problems.

She will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

Love,  Diane

Dear Donna, I am so glad to hear that the baby tested negative for Down's that is great. I will continue to pray your your sweet grandbaby, your daughter and your that the tests continue to show no problems. I wanted to respond to your post and questions. I am 38 and it took me over 6 years and 3 losses to have my twin girls. They are now a thriving, healthy 18 months and the light of my light.  Peanut did not pass before I got pregnant.  She was around when I got pregnant but her health was slowly going downhill at that time and my husband and my parents and me especially were scared to death that she would pass before I had the babies and the devastation would put me into early labor for sure.  But it was like Peanut knew I needed her more than ever and despite not feeling well, not getting around every good and peeing in the house all the time, she hung on and she hun on for me I know she did.  I was put on bedrest at 28 weeks and worked at home the first several weeks but then later didn't work anymore and having that time at home everyday with her was just wonderful. I carried her up and down the stairs until I started having contractions once in a while and a few false alarms the Dr told me not to do it anymore so then I would get on my hands and knees and help her up each stair one at a time. When I was laying on the bed all big and uncomfortable she would be curled at my side the entire time.  Then I gave birth in December and she was still with us and she loved to curl up next to me with the babies and with the babies themselves. I have several pictures of her with them and it was like she was their momma. So despite all she was going thru and not feeling well she was hanging on. She seemed to get worse in the wintertime but again she hung on. When I was up at all hours of the night she would get up despite not feeling well and again be curled up by whereever I was. She was my soulmate and losing that constant calming presence in my life has been extremely hard and painful to deal with. I too hope that your daughter can relax a little and enjoy this magical time in her life right now...feeling that little life growing inside her. I am sure her job and what she has seen while working doesn't make it easy not to worry but I do hope she is able to relax and put everything into God's hands. He will make everything ok.  I was never a very religious person but all of that has changed. I was reading the Purpose Driven life right before I got pregnant and there was achanpeter in it that really affected me and it said if you are angry at God or feel like you don't have a good relationship with him then you should have a "talk" with him and put it all out there and tell him how you feel and that you want to have Him back in your life.  I did just that right before I got pregnant. I was in the shower and I yelled at Him and told him how angry I was at him for allowing me to get pg in the past only to take them away, that was the reason I refused to go to church anymore. I asked him to please let me get pregnant, that we have waited long enough, suffered enough and that we will not take having a child for granted one little bit. Low and behold I got pregant and with twins. I truly feel He had a hand in this and without Him it never would have happened. Soll your daughter to talk to "Him" and tell him all of her worries and fears and ask him to help her and her family thru this difficult time in their life. He does listen and he does answer prayers. I am sorry if I offend anybody by this post but I wanted to share my experience with Donna.

Hugs and prayers,
Karen

Dear Donna:

I cannot imagine how scared you all must be right now.  I'm praying with all my might for you, your daughter, and your precious granddaughter.  Babies are true angels.  They're just so precious.  May God give your sweet granddaughter that special healing touch that only He can give, and may He grant you all peace, hope and strength.  Please, please keep us posted.

God Bless,
Gerlie (Gypsy and Luna's forever mom)
