Heartbroken and another prayer request

I belong to a Uterine Rupture group and a PAR (pregnancy after rupture) baby is always a source of excitement and joy...One of my dear friends, Nichole, was pregnant the same time that I was with Cooper...Her baby boy, Wyatt, who was 4 months old, died last night for causes yet to be determined. I'm in total shock and started to cry as soon as I read the e-mail...My stomach is sick and I don't know how I will fall asleep tonight...

So many doctors tell women with uterine ruptures to not have anymore babies (most of us, including Nichole, lost our babies during our ruptures) so when one of us defies the odds and brings home a baby...We all feel triumph...We cheer each other on...we hold each other up when we're feeling down...we're sisters in a faulty uterus sorority...

And, we feel heartbreak for each other when something devastating happens...is there anything more devastating then the death of a child...

Please, pray for this family in the next hours, days, and weeks to come...

That's just so unimaginably terrible. We will certainly be lifting that family up to the Lord...

I'm just now seeing this, and so so sorry for your friend. I'm praying for her and her family. I know you will be a great support for her.
