Hey everybody–as most of you know, we were expecting our first son to be born any day now. Everything had been absolutely fine during all of our doctor’s visits, check up’s, etc.
Last week, we felt like something might not quite be right, so we went in the night before our scheduled weekly check up–just to be extra careful about everything. We expected they’d check everything out and send us home; however, within a matter of minutes of arriving at the hospital they said that our baby was experiencing some distress, and that we need to go ahead and do a c-section as a precaution to make sure that they could take care of any problems, but that everything would probably be all right.
Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out that way–long story short, there were completely unexpected complications, and we lost our baby.
They kept us at the hospital for a week to make sure that Mel recovered–which she did. I just wanted to get this post up to let everybody know what happened–and let you all know that we’ll be closing the office, for the most part, for the next couple of weeks. I’ll try and get back with anything pertinent, and we’ll still be getting any orders that have come in out to everybody (Christmas cards, etc.)–but please be patient if we aren’t able to respond right away.
Thank you so much for everyone who has sent cards, flowers, thoughts, prayers, and everything else. You’ve all been a big help, and we greatly appreciate it.
Sean & Mel
