Co-worker lost her baby

Post by JohnnyMcPiperson » Wed Dec 19, 2018 4:48 pm

A co-worker of mine lost her baby due to pregnancy complications. It brought back a lot of memories of our own loss a couple years ago, even with two healthy children, it is still hard to think about, my wife and I feel for them deeply.

Of lesser import, I’ve been in a funk for the last handful of days, just feeling stressed and drained. I need to find a bit more joy and a bit less grumpiness. The semester coming to an end should help a bit, one more day of teaching and I’ll have a nice break, some time with the kids and the wife, it’ll be good.

On my knees now for all of you.

I also funk right now. Feelings of solidarity abound as well as prayer for a turn around.

You're in an unfortunately unique position to speak to her about your experience. Praying for all concerned.
