Overall, today was not as painful as I thought it would be. I am sure the percocet makes the difference though. The pain is manageable.

When my mother went to extend her plane ticket, the only choice was a week later. I didn't really think I wanted or needed her here another full week. I thought I could do this on my own. I don't like when people see me in pain, or see me cry, or see me struggle. But my mother insisted that she was staying a week.

I am really glad she did.

She was a big help today, especially when the going got tough. And it got pretty tough a couple of times. But she was here, and she was right on the same wavelength as I was. It was nice.

I am glad I didn't go this alone.

I'm so sorry. I just thought I'd check in and then I read the news. I'm crying over here. I remember what my miscarriage felt like but to experience two in a row? Pure agony. I'm so sad for how you feel right now. I didn't realize you couldn't have two D&C's in a row either.

Happy that your mom is there. Thinking of and praying for you and husband. :(

I'm so glad your mom is there and is a comfort to you. One of the biggest lessons I've learned over the past few years is how to accept help.

Thinking of you and your hubby.

Please remember you are never alone. You are one of the bravest women I have the privilege of knowing. I think about you and Russ on a constant basis. You are in my heart and in my prayers. I wish I could run next door and give you a hug. I hope to see you soon. j

I'm so glad your mother is there with you. I would be so worried if you were alone. Yes, you're strong. But no need to test your limits any further.

You have been constantly on my mind. *hugs*
