Am gonna write this while I am still numb.

We lost our little bubble tonight.

Our baby hasn't grown since the last scan. Her heart beat is less than 30. Dr Yash asked us if we would like to terminate now or wait until bubble leaves naturally without intervention.

Dr Yash is running the tests again just to make sure. We will make a decision after getting the results. Mrs C is sad. I will write to her to let her know of our gratitude and our love for her.

I am so very calm. The calm before the storm I suspect. Bob has been angry, now he is calm. There is nothing and no-one to be angry at. We cry, but not with the heart, there are just tears leaking from our eyes, tears running down our faces, tears we can't stop. Yet we haven't started crying.

The grief will hit us later I guess. 

Bubble: I love you so very much. I feel you with me as strongly as ever. This is not the end. You are going to be with Kelsey, she will care of you until you return.

I keep trying to come up with the right words, but I can't possibly say enough to solace you at this time of loss. The numbness will eventually ebb away with time, but know that you have many here thinking of both of you and here for support whenever you need it.

Amani and Bob,

There are absolutely no words to describe how incredibly sorry I am for you both. I must have sat here staring at the computer for an hour trying to find the right words. Instead I found myself crying. I am so, so sorry. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Love, Tracy

Amani and Bob,

I cannot find the words to describe how very sorry I am for your loss. This must be so hard. I only wish there was something I could do to ease your increadible pain. I will be thinking and praying for you and your Bubble.

Amani, I really don't know what to say. I'm sorry just doesn't seem like enough.

My heart goes out to you and Bob.

Dearest Amani and Bob,

To say our hearts aches with sorrow for you would not be words enough. We have quietly sat back and watched you bask in your own joy of waiting for your Bubble to be born and every time you wrote of your hopes and dreams we cheered you on here at home.

Brian and I know of the devestation you feel and if there were anything we could do to lessen that pain we would. You and Bob are such amazing people that deserve the joy that is parenthood. We shall pray for you, Bob and Bubble.

As you told us with the loss of our beautiful Kelsey, Bubble is lighting the way for other angels to come home to the loving arms of their Mommies and Daddies.

We love you and we support you and pray that time will ease this pain.

Lisa & Brian

Bob said...

We pulled the pin last night. I may be cruel but I insisted we definitively knew it was over. Zero heartbeat with confirmation that she was our baby. I wasn't going to make the decision until I knew it wasn't just a terrible mistake. It was one of the hardest calls I've ever had to make. We will see you in the next life Leia. It just wasn't time to meet right now.

Amani said...


i just love you SO very much.

Your wife
