We had a close call last night. Beth called to say that she had reason to believe she might have had a miscarriage. Joe and I assured her that she would be fine no matter what the outcome. She went to her OB's office this morning for an ultrasound. Good news.......heartbeat was there and wee one was moving around. She called me shouting "we've got a heartbeat!" Quite relieved of course. I have never experienced a miscarriage so I wasn't much help to her except to tell her that I love her and everything will be OK. Sometimes that is all we can do or say.
We will keep Abby this weekend and give her a chance to get some good rest. Funny too because I had already decided this morning that I wanted Abby for the weekend. I was also thinking about how much her other grandmother is missing out on. She rarely keeps Abby overnight. I have no idea why because Abby is no trouble at all, at least to us. I can't stand for her to be away for very long, as you guys all know. Oh well, her loss I guess. And our gain!
I know some of you are a bit creeped out by the baby items to the right of this blog but you know what? Last night, when I didn't know what was going to happen, just the thought of having to take the one called "Beth's Baby" off of here was very upsetting. I am very glad to be able to leave it.
