Thank you for my gift

Contributed by Laura (KS)

Hi. It's Laura. I just wanted to tell you that you have been on my mind all week and I have been praying for you as this weekend approaches. Having spent months terrified that I would lose the twins, I can only imagine the depth of your grief and my heart hurts for you. I hope you get through this anniversary okay and that the day you have planned with your family will help ease the pain if even just a little.

I also wanted to tell you that I think you are the reason my twins made it. When I went in at 21 weeks, the doctors did an internal exam and said all was good with my cervix and gave me the okay to fly and go on vacation. I remembered a post you made once cautioning me of the risks of twin pg. It made me just paranoid enough to ask for an internal ultrasound to check the cervix. Well, my cervix had already gone from a 4.0 to a 1.8 - and I was only halfway there. The doctors flipped out and put me on strict bed rest. I canceled my trip and spent the next 4 months with my feet up. I shudder when I think of what could have been. So thank you. I really do owe you an enormous debt. I often think of that when I look at the girls. I send a prayer of thanksgiving that God sent you here to help me.

I know nothing can make this week any easier for you. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and thanking you.

I pray that this week is as gentle as possible on your heart.
