This was a week with some incredible highs and lows for us. And because we won’t be able to attend the GOOD Magazine event tonight, Sara and I felt that it was important for us to explain why.
First, some good news: On Tuesday Sara and I found out that we’re going to be having a little baby girl. Since there aren’t many girls in my family, this wonderful bit of information came as an incredibly welcomed surprise for the both of us. To say that we’re thrilled would be the understatement of a lifetime.
But unfortunately things don’t always go as planned.
During the ultrasound, the doctor noticed that while the baby is healthy there was a problem with Sara’s cervix. She asked us to return the the next day for another examination and a few hours later, Sara was admitted into the hospital for an emergency surgery.
The surgery went fine and we returned home late last night.
The good news is that both Sara and the baby are doing well. But for now, Sara needs to be at home on bed rest.
Our hope is that for the next few weeks (and hopefully months) the baby will stay put and continue to grow and gain strength before being born.
We’re extremely optimistic and hoping for the best.
This little girl’s definitely a fighter and we’re rooting for her.
