Hello friends! I really mean that word: friends. I am so grateful for all the love, support and friendship that you have extended to me in the past few weeks. It has been difficult, but your words and prayers have helped lift me up. Thank you. If you had told me when I started this blog that I would "meet" some wonderful people who would become genuine friends, I never would have believed it. I am so happy that I have all of you and I thank you for your support.
I thought that I would write a bit of a catch-up post, because it seems that life has been moving a million miles a minute over here. The Sunday before our miscarriage was confirmed, my wonderful Hubby accepted a new job. It was an answered prayer and we were grateful. The new job is in my Hubby's hometown, which is 6 hours away from our current home. It is wonderful because Hubby can stay with his parents when he is working. The boss wanted him to start right away, but when we learned of the miscarriage my husband decided to start the next week. This allowed him to stay with me during my hospitalization and the few days after.
We plan to move to my Hubby's hometown so that we can be together as a family. I have given my notice at work and will be done at the end of March. We are currently fixing up the house and getting ready to sell.
This job has come at a difficult time but we are so excited about the new opportunity. I will be able to stay at home with our daughter, which is what we wanted all along. I am so happy! I will also have a college in the city that we are moving to so I will be able to take the schooling I want to take. It will be hard to be so far from my family, but it will be wonderful to be so close to my in-laws.
I am going to try to share a bit of our moving process and staging process on the blog. I also hope to do more of the Kon Mari method before we move, but that has been put on hold for now.
From a health standpoint, my miscarriage is still ongoing and it has had some complications. My doctor still wants to manage it conservatively which I am happy about. Due to our known fertility issues, I would like to avoid a D&C if at all possible. I am off work until further notice, so I am unable to do much of the house preparation on my own. I have been making great task lists for Hubby, though! Ha ha!
I have found the hormone crashes to be difficult emotionally and on those days I don't get much done. I simply pray a lot and lean on my family.
Thank you again for your support and friendship during this time. I hope you know how much it means to me.
It's good to hear from you, Ashley! I'm so excited for the news of your husband's new job AND that you'll be able to stay home once you move. That's wonderful! I will continue to pray for your health issues and that your doctor will have wisdom in caring for you. Hugs!ReplyDelete
