To be continued...someday
A week ago today, we learned that regardless of what medical science had told us, I was pregnant. On Monday, I had an ultrasound -- and even though it had been a couple of years since we'd been through any kind of infertility treatment, we learned I was carrying twins. Today, more of my bloodwork came back -- and even though I've yet to develop the symptoms -- we were told it appears I will be miscarrying and there isn't much hope. I rarely ask for thoughts and prayers here, but right now we'll gladly take any that you have to offer. I'm honestly not sure when I will blog again. I need a break. Life has taken on a whole new meaning in the last week. And I need my husband. We will be ok. We've made it this far, and things like this only succeed in making us closer. I've never loved Todd more than I do right now. For those who have known and supported us privately, we thank you. It's meant more to us than you can possibly imagine. - Robyn and Todd
UPDATE: Please note that I upgraded to MT 2.6 and closed additional comments on this entry, as I never intended for it to have comments in the first place. Thank you for respecting that in the future. And thanks to everyone who took the time to dig around my site in order to leave the kind words that they did. We truly appreciate every single one of them.
Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...
You know how I feel about you both and you know that we are continuing to pray for you. We love you and I wish there were some magic words that I could say to take away your pain. I'm sorry.¤ ¤ credit: Ashley | 02.12.03 at 10:34 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

You prolly don't know me, but that doesn't matter. Nothing matters right now except for your well-being. I am so sorry that this has happened. I pray that the Lord will give you the strength and guidance to get through this. I know this is the most difficult thing to have to go through. I just want you to know that I love the both of you and I will continually remember you in my prayers. Just remember, God is watching over us, and Miracles can happen. I pray that one is in store for the both of you!!
I am sorry to hear that. Prayers and thoughts are with you from everyone at Heathville.¤ ¤ credit: Lance | 02.13.03 at 07:13 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

I echo what nikki g. said. I know first-hand that miracles DO happen -- I have 3 of them to prove it ... they are the children my doctor never thought I could or would have.
I will be praying for one for you two, and will expect one right along with you! God Bless.

i'm throwing my name in the pot, here. (adding to the list of supporters.) to todd and robyn--because i love you both--you have my love, my thoughts, my candles burning, my good vibes and tranquil things, and if you ask me to i might even say a prayer to mighty Jee-ho-vah on your behalf. (this from a Godless heathen.)
come what may, i hope you'll both have the strength to get through it. language fails me at this time; i want to tell you both how much you mean to me, as neighbors on this www, and as my friends. i wish i could express it more adequately, more succinctly, than by just saying you have my love and support. at present, that's the best i can do. so robyn and todd, the inconquerable tobyn--i love you. you have my support. i'll be thinking of you.¤ ¤ credit: bran | 02.13.03 at 11:21 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
There are no words right now - but you are both in my thoughts and in my prayers... I love you both dearly and wish you nothing but the best.¤ ¤ credit: Christine | 02.14.03 at 12:12 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

This is one of those times when the right words to say don't seem to be within reach. Just know that I'm thinking of you and wishing both you and Todd all the best right now. If you feel the need to stop blogging right now, do it. Take all the time you need. Some things are more important, and you know that we'll all be right here when you do come back.¤ ¤ credit: Kathy | 02.14.03 at 01:45 AM | link--this ¤ ¤
I'm so sorry. I'll keep your whole family in my prayers. *hugs*¤ ¤ credit: Ailina | 02.14.03 at 03:43 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

I have read your blog for quite some time and have grown to know you are an extremely strong woman. My thoughts are with you and your husband as you tackle this hurdle. I know your love and inner strength will not only pull you through, but make you a better person because of it. Hang on and take good care of yourself.¤ ¤ credit: Jooles | 02.14.03 at 01:00 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
Robyn and Todd...
Robyn and Todd: I am Leigh's sister, Kelly. She asked me to pray for you, and I am! I myself, have had 3 miscarriages, and I know exactly how emotionally painful it can be! It leaves such a great feeling of loss. I hope and pray that the doctors are wrong! They are not perfect! Yes, you will get through this, and the pain will lessen over time. Please know that you will remain in my thoughts and prayers daily. God bless.¤ ¤ credit: Kelly | 02.14.03 at 02:10 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
