I just had a call from my older daughter on the West Coast. She and her husband had found out they were expecting about two weeks ago, but hadn’t yet told anyone. She started bleeding and cramping badly Sunday night, and saw the doctor today. They had hoped to have happy news when we all got together in January, and they are so disappointed.
I know what she’s going through, as it happened to me three times, at 6 weeks each time. Her sister has already had laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis, so she had been holding her breath, afraid something would go wrong.
She is seeing an NFP-only, Napro technology physician in whom she has confidence. She had an ultrasound today, will go back tomorrow to have hormone levels checked, and sees the doctor again next week to see what the course of action will be.
I know all too well how common an event this is, but it doesn’t make it any easier when it’s your daughter who is going through it.
Thanks for listening.
