Please keep my daughter Kelli in your prayers. Yesterday she went for her routine OB check-up and the doctor could not find the babies heartbeat. She was sent for a sonogram and it was found that the baby had died. She was 16.5 weeks pregnant.
I can't begin to tell you how heartbroken our family is....but my concerns are for Kelli now. She will enter the hospital today, to have a procedure done to remove the baby. She is scared.....they will be putting her under. She doesn't know what to expect and is emotionally drained from this experience.
We are thankful for her three happy, healthy, beautiful children. But for her, losing a baby at any stage is just a huge thing. She has had two other miscarriages but was never this far along. And of course you ask questions over and over as to why these things happen. Sometimes there just aren't answers and we have to trust in the Lord to get through these difficult times.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers today. Thank you all so much.
Love - BJ
