This is a summary of what has happened over this past week. Thank you for your patience.
Sunday, June 20
My daughter Kathy is in the Emergency Room at Saint Agnes Hospital at the moment. Apparently, she went to the bathroom and some blood in her pee. She is about 2-3 months pregnant and we’re praying that it is nothing serious! This happened about 1.5 hours ago. I don’t even want to think of what it might be.
She has cramping and some back pain, and right now, I can’t think of anything but this. She is in an exam room waiting to be seen, so thank God that she got in quickly. Just asking for prayers that she will be fine.

I just talked to Kathy and she has an appt today. She didn’t sleep very well last night (or anyone) and is still spotting when she pees. The doctor thinks that the baby may not be very strong and that’s why she’s been spotting. We’ll wait and see what her OB says. Continued prayers please.
I’m so upset right now, I can barely think straight. Kathy just called in tears and told me that the baby is in the process of miscarrying. Her hormone levels should be going up, around 1000, and it’s only 100. The baby just isn’t strong enough to survive. She will have some more lab work done and not sure what is happening right at the moment as it was hard to understand her on the phone!
They did an ultrasound and since she was early in the pregnancy, all they could see were mostly blood clots. The doctor believes that the baby must’ve had either something wrong or wasn’t implanted in the placenta or uterus properly, and that it would probably not survive.
This is really hard on all of us at the moment, so I won’t be on as much for a while as I feel I need to be there for her at this time. Thank you for understanding, your support and prayers! She will call us with more information later.
