One of my best friends just found out she may have to terminate her pregnancy because of a possible condition called encephaloceles that effects 1 in 10,000 pregnancies. She just suffered a miscarriage in July and fortunately got pregnant with this baby shortly after. The miscarriage came after a year of trying.
I am so angry this is happening to her, one of the most amazing women I know. I just don’t understand. My heart is breaking in a thousand pieces knowing how much she must be hurting. Even though I know similar pain, this I can’t imagine having to go through on top of so much pain already…I am left feeling helpless.
So this is where I’m turning to all of you, this incredible community of ours….please leave her some love here, something that will allow her to feel all of your hands on her shoulders like I’ve felt on mine so many times. Tomorrow morning she’s going in for a CVS to find out the fate of her baby she’s been trying for for so long and needs all the prayers and good thoughts we can summon.
S, I wish I could take this pain away from you. Since I can’t, I’ll do anything I can to ease it, even a little.
Update: they’re 99% sure they have to terminate the pregnancy. This is just so unfair. My heart just broke into even more pieces for her….how much is left to break at this point?
